The mission of the Central Park Conservancy, a private non-profit, is to restore, manage, and enhance Central Park, in partnership with the public.
Don't miss the annual Pumpkin Sail, when a flotilla of jack o’ lanterns are launched at sundown. BYOP if you want to launch your own creation into the fray.
During the summer this is the place to be for great world music, between sunning, fine picnic food and just a great experience (not a bad place to people watch too).
There's an interesting dynamic to this part of the park compared to other parts of CP.
beautiful lake with swans, lots of hills and rocks to climb facing the lake. follow path along fifth ave and you will come to the nature conservatory full of beautiful flowers.
If you love dogs or have a dog this is the place to be. It's a pleasant morning run for me. Starts to get a little busy about 7:45 during the week.
I know the sign says, "Do not feed animals" but feed the ducks & tiny birds anyway! Avoid pigeons at all costs!
Think of this as the JKO Reservoir of the north. It's roughly 1 mile of mostly asphalt or gravel around the meer, making it a great running route. Plus there are plenty of hilly detours if you choose.
Dog off leash hours are open to 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. to close.
Fishing here is for practice only, meaning that you have to return the fish to the lake except for one species that is extremely invasive. Be sure to read the signs for more info and pics of the fish.
A hidden gem at the northeast end of Central Park, and among the most beautiful, elegant and serene offerings from the world's greatest natural resource.
I love my neighborhood park. It's a beautiful and peaceful urban oasis
I love my neighborhood. This is one of my favorite chill spots!
good fun fishing w/ little people...
It's a beautiful part of the park, but unfortunately under lots of construction right now. ):
Never mind the swarm of map carriers that you'll get downtown in this park. The mere reps solitude and peace. The occasional festival makes it's presence now and then. Romantic and sexy park and peeps
It is a nice swam
Last performance of the summer, Afro Cuban Music. It's always great here. :-)
Swing by Ottomanelli's on the east side of the part or Bier International on the west side for a brew.
