0.4Thousands of runners and cyclists come here on weekends to train themselves.
0.8Balto Statue. The piece pays homage to the famed sled dog who battled tundra conditions in Alaska and helped save the state?s children.+Info
1.0More than 50 million tourists visit New York every year, and many of them decide to have a ride along this park.

3.8A green area among so huge giants made of iron, cristal and concrete.
4.0On your left 11 baseball and softfall fields.
4.5Lasker Rink. On your right a swimming pool in Summer and an ice skating rink in Winter.

5.8When a tourist comes to New York he or she usually uses time to the greatest advantage, but there are many hideouts in Central Park that really should be seen.

10.6Umpire Rock / Heckscher Playground. +Info
10.9Hundreds of baseball and softball games are played each season at the six fields that make up the Heckscher Ballfields.+Info
11.3Wollman Rink / Victorian Gardens. Only in Summer, live interactive shows keep both kids and parents laughing, hula-hooping, dancing and singing. Classic concessions such as cotton candy, caramel corn, and ice cream are munchies that keep the entire family fulfilled. In Winter, you'll find an ice skating rink.+Info
11.7The Pond. The Pond is one of Central Parks seven naturalistic water bodies. Despite the millions of visitors who walk by the waters edge each year, there is still a sense of solitude, particularly on the western arm bordering Hallett Nature Sanctuary. +Info
13.0Minton Tiles. Just below the bridge you are riding on.
13.4The Lake. The Lake was included in the original design of Central Park by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux.
13.6Bethesda Fountain. With the famous Angel of the Waters statue atop. Created by Emma Stebbins, it also marked the first time a woman received a public art commission in New York City.+Info

14.5Glade Arch.
15.1The Ramble. To use the words of Park designer Frederick Law Olmsted, The Ramble is a 36-acre "wild garden." Central Park's designers imagined a tranquil spot where visitors could stroll, discover forest gardens rich with plantings, and meander along the paths. This truly is a place for the urban explorer to escape the city and get utterly lost in nature.+Info
15.5And this is is the appearance in Winter...
15.8And again close to softball fields.
16.3Picnic area.
16.7Reservoir. One of the Park's most picturesque landscapes, the reservoir is 40 feet deep and holds a billion gallons of water. President Bill Clinton, Madonna, and Jackie Kennedy Onassis (for whom the reservoir was named in 1994) have all run on the 1.58-mile track. +Info

18.5The Pool.
19.7Nutter's Battery Site. This overlook marks the site of a military fortification built during the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. With its high, rocky ground, and expansive views that still can be experienced today, it?s clear why this was an important strategic position.+Info
