Sprawling for 843 acres, with lush green trees and plants, one finds it hard to believe that it was once a terrain containing sheds from the colonists, pig farms, and swamps.
The idea by Frederic Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux was of a park that should be English-styled with huge meadows and lakes and so many trees that the view of the city’s buildings is obstructed.
Central Park boasts numerous lakes, ice rinks, theatres, fountains, baseball fields, tennis courts, and other facilities. It is a not-to-be-missed while sightseeing. It is also home to Central Park Zoo and the famous Metropolitan Museum of Art.
