Central Park is one of the most famous parks in New York, in America, even in the world, and with good reason. In the midst of a city that prides itself on its adrenaline-induced insomnia, as well as its towering skyscrapers, Central Park provides an oasis of green tranquility, not just for New Yorkers, but for those from nearby cities, as well!
If you’re bringing your children to Central Park (and why wouldn’t you?), one of the places you might want to check out is the Adventure Playground. This exciting space includes a small step pyramid for climbing, several slides, a concrete water course, and multiple seating options – all located in a large, sandy area, perfect for play.
Have a seat, open up a good book, and read it with one eye while your other watches your kids enjoy themselves on this wonderful, almost labyrinthine stage.
You can find the Adventure Playground around W 67th St.
If you’d like some more low-key fun, or if your group doesn’t include any children, the Azalea Walk is a relaxing, beautiful alternative. Containing both white Swamp Azaleas and Pinkster flowers, this walk between towering trees and blooming blossoms is natural beauty at its very best.
The Azalea Walk is also part of the larger Naturalists’ Walk, another option to consider if plants and wildlife are what you’re keen to see.
You can find the Azalea Walk on the West Side at 76th Street and the West Drive.
A Plethora of Possibilities
Central Park is immense. Opportunities for fun of all different sorts abound: from picnics on Cedar Hill (located on the East Side from 76th to 79th Streets), to viewing some of the park’s many statues; you will not lack for enjoyment.
The park is enormous, and is boxed in by 5th Avenue (where you can also find the Guggenheim and the Jewish Museum), W 110th St., Central Park West (across from the American Museum of Natural History), and W 59th St.
