Our hotel was right opposite central park and considering reviews I've read before about it I was surprised on how big and well maintained the grounds were.
TOP TIPS: Don't go at night & If you were looking at walking round all of it, It'll take all day!

Everyone knows (of) Central Park. For me it is just a no-brainer to go on your first day for sunrise when you come over from Europe. Start at the southwest corner at Columbus circle, easy to get there by underground and you get the first sun -there is also a coffee-place for the ones who struggled to get up - although I recommend the ballfields cafe, which is about 15mins into the park.

Get a get feel for the place before the crowds hit it.

Central Park is definitely a place every tourist needs to see while they are in the city. Put on your favorite pair of sneakers and take in the beauty in this park. Tons of things to see and do here, I love it.

Nice park. Probably nicer to see in spring but still was crazy busy and neat looking. You can even rent bikes to ride through..

Walked between the natural history museum and the met several times and managed to not take the same route twice. We visited when it was snowing, turning the entire park into a winter wonderland. The wildlife that we saw was great with american robins being a particular favourite.
