Central Park is one of those places that make New York such a great place to live. The huge park, 843 acres large, is located in the center of Manhattan. Its design is an example for city parks around the world. The park boasts several lakes, theaters, ice rinks, fountains, tennis courts, baseball fields, many playgrounds and other facilities. It is also home to the Central Park Zoo and the Metropolitan museum of Art. Especially during the weekends, when cars are not allowed into the park, Central Park is a welcome oasis in this hectic city.

The Great Lawn
The Great Lawn is 13 acres of green grass with baseball fields, basketball courts, and lots of room for sports and leisure activities.

The Wildlife Center and Children's Zoo
See the zoo (or wildlife center) that the movie Madagascar made famous. The movie took some creative license (sorry, no lions or hippos or giraffes). However, the Central Park Wildlife Center has plenty to see -- sea lions, monkeys, penguins, polar bears, and more. A special children's zoo lets kids get close to goats, sheep, cows, and a Vietnamese pot-bellied pig.

Strawberry Fields
Strawberry Fields was designed as a garden of peace in honor of John Lennon (1940-1980). When Lennon lived in the nearby Dakota apartment building, this was his favorite oasis in Central Park. A black-and-white mosaic with the word "Imagine" now marks the entrance to Strawberry Fields. Fans leave flowers, poems, and other tributes in remembrance of Lennon.

The Reservoir
The Reservoir (officially named the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir since 1994) is best know for the 1.58 mile track surrounding it. Thousands of runners get their exercise here daily. Spring runs are particularly scenic thanks to the ornamental cherry trees that bloom along the track.
