Central Park

Nature, Parks, & Gardens • New York City, New York United States

The largest park in New York City spreads across 843 acres. It is even bigger than some countries (e.g. the Principality Monaco or the Vatican City State). Despite the fact that it was landscaped, it looks very natural. The park was opened for the public for the first time in 1858 and broadened to its present-day size in 1873.

Central Park is one of the most popular filming locations in New York City. Among many films that feature the Central Park is Breakfast at Tiffany’s, When Harry Met Sally or Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.

Among the many places worth visiting in Central Park are: the Belvedere Castle, the famous Strawberry Fields (a memorial dedicated to John Lennon) and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. If you do not feel like walking all the way through the park, you can rent a bike, enjoy a horse carriage tour or a pedicab tour.
