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.

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.
