Description

New York’s Central Park, considered to be the heart of the city, has been a designated national historic landmark since 1963 and was the nation’s first urban public green space. Popular among tourists as well as New Yorkers, the beautiful park has an endless number of activities that cater to all types of visitors. Spread across an area of over 800 acres, the massive park with over 20 different playgrounds, numerous walking paths, carriage rides and rickshaw rides is the perfect place to enjoy a lovely stroll in the evening or just relax. The Central Park Zoo housed within the park features more than 100 species of animals from around the world and is a definite must-visit when visiting the park with kids. Located in the city center, amidst all the towering buildings, this huge green space is a lovely oasis from the concrete jungle that New York is.
