Walkscore: New York City's Central Park

Join us as we escape the hustle and bustle of Manhattan and journey through the most visited urban park in the United States, Central Park. As the city began to expand in the mid-1800s and become a booming metropolis, there was a clear need for open space, so in 1857, 778 acres in the center of Manhattan became Central Park. Now spanning 840 acres, the park includes a variety of activities including a zoo, a carousel and an array of art.
