On a beautiful day in any season, nothing beats a walk in the park. People think of Central Park as New York's natural parkland. Nothing could be further from the truth. Amazingly, every inch of this park is manmade.
While you walk, make a day of it. Stop along the way to ride the carousel, explore Belvedere Castle, get lost (well, not too lost) in The Ramble, catch a rest in Sheep Meadow...
The tour begins at Columbus Circle at the USS Maine Memorial, the only formal entrance to the park.
