Jog, skate or walk through Central Park

From morning jogs to winter ice skating, Central Park is a hub of activity that changes with the seasons. Ride the vintage carousel, row across the serene 22-acre lake or simply enjoy a good ol’ fashioned snow fight in the most visited urban park in the whole of the United States.

Catering to all types of travellers, families especially will love trekking through the 26,000 trees that the birds, squirrels and chipmunks call home. Boasting seven man-made lakes and ponds, couples can enjoy a waterside picnic underneath a clear blue sky in the summer. As well as the rays, culture can also be soaked up thanks to the 51 sculptures, 36 bridges and sites such as Belvedore Castle and Cleopatra’s Needle littering the expansive landscape. Holidaying in the winter? Head to the Wollman Rink and don your blades for a spot of ice skating.

Make sure to check if there are any concerts or shows being held here, as the venue is one of New York’s greatest. Previous artists include Garth Brooks, Bon Jovi and Diana Ross so expect a one-of-a-kind experience if you manage to catch a performance.

Those wanting to get active have 58-miles of paths to explore, a favourite with joggers. Taking you through to places such as the Great Lawn and The Conservatory Garden, make sure to head to the John Lennon memorial Strawberry Fields where you’re bound to find a local armed with a guitar singing one of the late star’s hits.

It wouldn’t be a trip to Central Park without a go on the famous carousel complete with 57 hand-carved horses and two decorative chariots. The ride has been entertaining people since 1871, with no chance of slowing down. A definite must in our eyes.

WINGED BOOTS WISDOM

Six times larger than the country of Monaco, Central Park is brilliant for nature-lovers and those wanting to explore the greenery that’s made it one of New York City’s top destinations. For a fun day out for all the family, make sure to stop by the Central Park Zoo that is home to more than 130 difference species of animals with penguins, puffins and polar bears being some of the top hits.
