Central Park's unique history, accessibility and design make it (undoubtedly!) New York City's most famous park—Oh yeah, and it's appearance in countless beloved films does, too! It was the first public park built in the United States, sees about 25 million visitors per year and contains 36 bridges and arches and around 50 monuments, sculptures and fountains. Perhaps most important to families, the park contains 21 playgrounds, Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater, charming paddleboat rentals and, of course, the Central Park Zoo.
