Because the park covers a very large area without any main access roads, the best ways to explore Central Park are on foot or by bicycle. When traveling with a group to visit Central Park, it’s best to pick a location where a rental bus can drop you off and pick you up at the end of the day. You can choose from school buses, coach buses, and minibuses, but the best way to go is chartering a door-to-door shuttle service. This way, you can even have your bus pick you up at a different location if you decide to walk from one end of the park to the other.

Central Park covers a total of 840 acres between 59th and 110th Streets in Manhattan. This makes it the largest park in the city and some might argue that it’s also the most important. Historically, it is one of the first parks in the United States that was designed using the principles of landscape architecture. The original plan for Central Park was designed by architects Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux.
Central Park is historically important to the development of the city as a whole. In the 1840s, the spread of urbanization threatened to consume all of the green spaces on the island. Late in that decade, support for the preservation of the island’s green space had grown widespread and by 1856 the vast majority of the land where Central Park now sits had been purchased for a total of about 5 million dollars.
In 1858, the design plans submitted by Olmsted and Vaux were chosen from amongst 33 others and construction began in earnest. A rumored 5 million trees and shrubs were planted, water supply lines were laid, and roads, trails, bridges, and arches were constructed. Central Park was officially completed and opened in 1876.
