For your stroll, head to the 36-acre wilderness area on the west side of the park known as the Ramble. The area has a storied history (as a gay cruising spot dating back to the turn of the last century, among other things), and it was even proposed as a recreational area in the mid-'50s. Thankfully, the winding trails, rocks and streams seemingly remain waiting to be discovered.

Central Park is a sweet haven that every New Yorker appreciates and treasures. It's an immeasurably valuable respite that's not only gorgeous but one of the only places in the city you might be able to actually find a place to be completely alone. When you're surrounded by concrete and thousands of people all day long, it's incredibly cleansing and rejuvenating to walk under shady trees for hours, getting lost, stumbling upon lakes and hidden castles, watching athletes duke it out on the baseball fields, or my personal favorite, laying out a giant blanket and eating my weight in cheese and charcuterie while someone plays guitar nearby. After a snowstorm, it's ethereal.
Central park is just amazing! Whether it is just a stroll in the park or a boat ride with a loved, playing catch with friends or just a picnic with family, it has everything for everyone. Personally the boat ride is a must! I have been on it a couple of times and not only is it relaxing to just get away from everything but it was also a great work out!The actual lake is not that long as I would like it to be but it is a beautiful place to go, and plus great place to take selfies
Central Park is the most popular of parks for foragers. Because of its varied habitats and the combination of wild and cultivated, native, and exotic plants. Central Park is a great place to forage, even in the winter and early-spring. http://goo.gl/A0r7zi

Great all year round, but especially in the spring/summer time... All I gotta say is, rowboats. Do it.
