Located in Manhattan, Central Park is New York City’s largest green space, spanning 340 hectares. Surrounded by the Upper East and West Side, two upper-class neighbourhoods, Central Park offers an ideal green landscape for relaxing.
Central Park, completed in 1873, is the work of two landscape architects, Frederick Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. People come to stroll, relax and admire its lush open spaces, gardens, and water sources. It is equally a major location for New York’s cultural events and festivities.
Also worth discovering: The Delacorte Clock, which marks each hour with music and moving animal figurines, the majestic elm tree-arched walkway, “The Mall,” the “Sheep Meadow” preserve, and the “Bethesda Fountain Terrace” a magnificent esplanade with its statue-adorned fountain. You can also find “The Ramble,” a 15-hectare woodland area traversed by walking trails and creeks where over 270 migrating bird species can be observed. Additionally, you can visit “The Lake,” a lake with its metallic Bow Bridge, and the Loeb Boathouse. Here, one may rent rowing boats, have a drink, or dine. Finally, in the Central Park Zoo, you can admire a hundred species of animals.
