Central Park

One of the most iconic parks in the world in the center of Manhattan.

By Emma Reynolds

One of — if not — the most iconic park in the world lies within Manhattan’s Upper East and West Sides. Spanning 843 acres, Central Park is an iconic respite from the concrete jungle that hosts the Central Park Zoo; Central Park Conservancy; Delacorte Theater (which hosts the iconic) Shakespeare in the Park; restaurants, including Tavern on the Green; Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir; Sheep Meadow; running trails, ponds, concerts, many events and more. Central Park is never not busy — especially in the summer — and there are always a slew of bikers, runners and walkers out to enjoy the verdant greenery. It’s possible to explore Central Park and always find something new to enjoy and cherish. It was built in the 1850s and was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1963. There are more than 42 million visitors each year and it’s known as one of the most visited tourist attractions in the world. If you need a dose of flora and fauna, come here to explore the park’s 20,000 types of trees, plant nurseries and many migratory birds. The park also has many national monuments, like at the Columbus Circle entrance, and many notable structures like the Bethesda Terrace and Fountain and the Ornamental Bridge.
