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 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.
