New York`s Central Park was created in the 1860s and 70s by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux on the marshy northern fringe of the city, the immense park was designed as a leisure space for all to enjoy and has been dubbed as an “Oasis” in the centre of this busy concrete jungle with lush lawns, cool forests, flowering gardens, glassy bodies of water and meandering, wooded paths.

The park is still one of the city`s most popular attractions bringing masses of New Yorkers and tourists here offering free outdoor concerts at the Great Lawn, precious animals at the Central Park Wildlife Centre and top-notch drama at the annual Shakespeare in the Park productions, held each summer at the open-air Delacorte Theatre. Ever-changing guided tours of the park, including those that focus on public art, wildlife and places of interest to kids are easily arranged to help you get the most out of your visit here.
