The Dairy Visitor Center and Gift Shop
Back in time, one of the critical needs of children was for fresh milk. Unfortunately, a series of scandals and cholera outbreaks placed the dairy production of the city under a cloud of suspicion. To lift suspicion and fulfill the Dairy needs of the people, the city provided a place where families could find a ready supply of fresh milk when traveling to the park. Thus, the dairy was built.
Today, the Dairy serves as a general visitor center and provides the public with information on the design of Central Park, current park events and programs.

• Admission Ticket Free

Central Park's Literary Walk
This quarter-mile promenade is flanked by towering American elm trees. A stroll along the Mall can be a transcendent experience, precisely what Olmsted and Vaux envisioned for the Park’s only formal promenade. The elegant path is surrounded by North America’s largest remaining stand of American elms, whose interlocking branches create a stained-glass effect as sunlight trickles to the ground.

• Admission Ticket Free

Balto Statue
A heroic sled dog immortalized in bronze, Balto is a beloved fixture in the Park.

• Admission Ticket Free

Central Park Summerstage
A spacious outdoor entertainment venue just off the eastern edge of the Mall, Rumsey Playfield features all types of cultural delights—music, dance, spoken word, film.

• Admission Ticket Free

Conservatory Water
This ornamental pond was originally constructed in 1858 as a reflecting pool for a glass conservatory, but the plan for the structure was abandoned. Instead, in the tradition of Parisian parks, it became a playground for model boats—and, consequently, one of the Park’s most beloved children’s attractions.

• Admission Ticket Free

Bethesda Fountain
At 26 feet high and 96 feet in diameter, this fountain is one of the largest in the City. Created by sculptor Emma Stebbins, it commemorates the 1842 opening of the Croton Aqueduct, which brought fresh water from Westchester County into New York City and ended the cholera epidemic. Angel of the Waters—the City’s first major piece of public art commissioned from a woman—references the gospel of John, which describes an angel blessing the Pool of Bethesda and giving it healing powers. The lily in her left hand represents purity, and the four figures surrounding the pedestal below signify peace, health, purity, and temperance.

The carriage will stop by the Bethesda Fountain, you will be able to have a short walk to the fountain and take pictures.

Strawberry Fields, John Lennon Memorial
Named after one of Lennon’s favorite songs, “Strawberry Fields Forever,” the memorial sits just across the street from the landmark Dakota apartment building, Lennon’s former home and the site of his tragic death in 1980. Like many Upper West Siders, Lennon would often enjoy walks in this very landscape.

5 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Ghostbusters Building
The building holds significance in American popular culture because the plot of the 1984 film Ghostbusters revolves heavily around it.

• Admission Ticket Free

Columbus Circle
Columbus Circle is remarkable not only for its central monument but also for the subways beneath it and the collection of buildings clustered around it

• Admission Ticket Free

Heckscher Playground
Heckscher Playground is not only the oldest playground in Central Park, it is also the largest at almost two acres. In addition to the typical park attractions, such as a variety of slides, swings, and seesaws, Heckscher Playground features both a water fixture and giant rocks for climbing.

It was a nice ride around the park. The driver Nicko was very polite and friendly. I would have liked to have taken better pictures but the carriage was moving.
