Right in the heart of Manhattan stands this oasis of rolling pastures and gardens, stretching from Midtown to Harlem. It was created in 1857 by Frederick Law Olmstead and Calvert Vaux.

Across the park lies a charming Central Park Wildlife Conservation Center, and children of all ages love the restored carousel.
