    Go Fish! Head to the nearby Dana Discovery Center, which loans out free poles, along with bait and helpful fishing tips. Angle for largemouth bass, catfish, bluegill sunfish, chain pickerel, and carp. Read more

    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.

    You won't find a swarm of map carriers like downtown, in this park. Come for solitude and peace. The occasional festival makes it's presence in summer months. Perfect for sky gazing and blade blazing.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    As an equally festive tree-lighting alternative to Rockefeller Center, check out Holiday Lights at Harlem Meer. Enjoy caroling, cookies and more. Find out when on MetroFocus Read more

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I know the sign says, "Do not feed animals" but feed the ducks & tiny birds anyway! Avoid pigeons at all costs!

    There's an interesting dynamic to this part of the park compared to other parts of CP.
