Densely populated with skyscrapers, nature in manhattan comes in the form of a 1.3 square mile piece of land — central park.

However, as a consequence of its location, only a small percentage of new yorkers are able to benefit from this vast public garden each day.

Central Park is an urban park in New York City, between the Upper West and Upper East Sides of Manhattan. It is the fifth-largest park in the city, covering 843 acres.

It is the most visited urban park in the United States, with an estimated 42 million visitors annually as of 2016, and is the most filmed location in the world.

Main attractions include landscapes such as the Ramble and Lake, Hallett Nature Sanctuary, the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, and Sheep Meadow; amusement attractions such as Wollman Rink, Central Park Carousel, and the Central Park Zoo

Recreational activities include carriage-horse and bicycle tours, bicycling, sports facilities, and concerts and events such as Shakespeare in the Park. Central Park is traversed by a system of roads and walkways and is served by public transportation.
