    Looking for a good place to run stairs? Look no further as there are multiple areas where it takes 140+ steps to walk from the bottom of the park to the top.

    Straddling Central Park, Columbia, & Central Harlem lies the perfect escape from other overrun parks nearby. Well maintained with a waterfall and duck pond with turtles & geese. Crowded on holidays.

    Check out the farmers market on Saturday morning. Go for a nice walk or run! Lovely views of buildings in the background while in this park.

    This is a gorgeous park. However, it can be a bit shady if you are alone at night. People around here constantly warn you not to walk through the park at night, but I have never had a bad experience.

    Morningside Park is beautiful in any season. Come during winter to sled down hills at 110th Street, 113th Street, or 122nd Street. Choose your favorite! Read more

    There are 155 steps to climb to get to 113th Street and Morningside Drive from the bottom of the park. Why pay for a gym membership?

    Go for a walk with your dog or have a barbecue with friend, and best of all, read by the lake when it's nice outside!

    Don't walk alone on the upper path between 116-118 without a dog. If you have a big dog, please walk there to keep the path safe.

    The Daffodils are just coming out - in a few weeks, the park will be full of flowers in the gardens and on the flowering trees. It's going to be great.

    When the Columbia gym project was abandoned in 1968, the pond in Morningside Park was created.
