Iconic for New York and the U.S., Central Park is among the most famous parks in the world. The green oasis of about 845 acres in the middle of concrete Manhattan offers plenty to do. Jog around the large reservoir, sunbathe or have a picnic on the Great Lawn, find solitude behind one of the huge rocks or along the many trails. Some of the most popular attractions are the zoo, skating rink in the winter, carriage horses, Strawberry Fields, which are a tribute to John Lennon, and the Victorian Gardens.
