In the middle of winter, Central Park doesn't come off as such an exciting place. Sure, it is a huge park in the middle of a big city, but really it isn't all that different from millions of parks around the world. I can imagine that it isn't until a beautiful sunny day that it's magic comes through. We weren't lucky enough to experience it this way.
Strawberry Fields, the Resevoir, Tavern on the Green, Alice in Wonderland, the fountain and the Conservatory Garden are some of the park's highlights. Horse-drawn carriage rides are a popular way to see the park. Watch out for joggers, as there are MANY running on the paths and trails.
