Central Park itself incorporates nearly 850 acres of space; however, this adventure will concentrate on the south side of the park.
Certain activities, such as the Central Park Carousel and food vendors, only accept cash. There are a few ATMs in the park; however, they are difficult to find. Bring cash along so you do not take away time from your experience by having to locate one.
The park is busiest on weekends. Yet, due to the immense size of the park, there is always enough space to find your own quiet place.
The park is gorgeous in any season. Of course, a rainy day would not be best for the tour. Note that some of the items listed are seasonal (see each specific listing for more info).
Victorian Gardens (amusement park) and Wollman Rink (ice rink) are pricey. Sometimes Groupon offers coupons to these, check the site before going.
