The Basics

Central Park has something for everyone. Visit Bethesda Fountain, the Strawberry Fields monument, or the Alice in Wonderland statue; enjoy kid-friendly fun on the carousel at the Central Park Zoo; sail model boats at the Conservatory Water pond; or simply enjoy people-watching at Bethesda Terrace or Sheep Meadow. The park’s size can be overwhelming, so consider a park bike tour, a walking tour, or a pedicab tour for a guided experience. Bike rentals are also available for those who prefer to explore on their own.

Informative and Interesting
Very informative and interesting. Even though it was very cold on the day we did the tour, Tyson (our guide) provided us with a very warm blanket to share. He gave us information about the different areas of the park and pointed out where different movies and shows were filmed as well as various celebrity homes overlooking the park.

45 Minutes Central Park Tour
We had a great tour of Central Park. Tyson was the driver & Horse named Michelle. The tour has been on my wish list for a long time. Easy to find and a nice way to unwind after the theatre and Times Square. Would recommend this to all. Our driver took some beautiful pics for us in a couple locations which was a great bonus for our family. Tour provided info on places of interest in the park as well as time to explore sites if we wished to do so.

Half-Day Hell's Kitchen Food Tour and Central Park Stroll
Great tour guide. Nancy was fantastic, a genuinely nice person. The actual restaurants were not that impressive and not worth the price. I really enjoyed the Central Park walking tour. Nancy was very knowledgeable & kept things light and interesting.

45 Minutes Central Park Tour
Fun way to see Central Park with kids! It was cold but much warmer in the carriage under a blanket! Our guide pointed out various movies that were filmed around the park. Kids particularly enjoyed seeing where the snowball fight happened in Elf. Thanks for a nice experience! Lunch at Tavern on the Green afterwards was delicious!!!!

How to Get There

Central Park is bordered by 59th Street, Central Park West, 110th Street, and Fifth Avenue, making it reachable on foot from many Manhattan neighborhoods. Otherwise, hop off the subway at Columbus Circle or Fifth Avenue to enter the park from the south, where you can take a horse-drawn carriage ride to explore via a traditional form of transportation.

When to Get There

The park is open daily from 6am to 1am. It’s a can’t-miss attraction at any time of year, but to enjoy a classic New York City activity such as ice skating at Wollman Rink or watching a performance of Shakespeare in the Park, you’ll want to visit during the appropriate season (winter and summer, respectively).

Museums Surrounding Central Park

Many of New York City’s top museums lie just on the edges of Central Park, most notably on Manhattan’s famed Museum Mile, a stretch of Fifth Avenue that’s home to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Cooper Hewitt, the Smithsonian Design Museum, the Jewish Museum, the Museum of the City of New York, and the Neue Galerie New York. On the other side of the park, you’ll find the American Museum of Natural History.
