Sports

New York’s Central Park is not only a wonderful place in which to enjoy a relaxing walk or to take in a summer concert on the verdant expanse of the Great Lawn. It is also New York City’s Playground.

Just north of the Reservoir you will find the Central Park Tennis Courts with 26 clay and 4 asphalt courts. That makes it the largest public tennis facility in all of New York City.

The Park offers an amazing array of spectator, team and solitary sports. Whether you want to relax and watch a softball game at the Heckscher Ballfields, play a pick up game of Basketball, or run a few laps around the Reservoir the Park has something for everyone.

The Park even has its very own Lawn Bowling area. Here the terribly civilised passtimes of Lawn Bowling and Croquet can be indulged in without fear of colonial intervention.

Running and Race Walking are also very popular sports in the Park with the rolling hills and scenic pathways forming a challenging and interesting course

Central Park also offers a variety of seasonal sports, as well. In the summertime you can go for a swim at Lasker Pool at the northern end of the park. The fall is the perfect time for running in the park, checking out the spectacular change in the foliage as you jog through the crisp air. In the winter there is always skating at Wollman Rink, or even cross-country skiing if there is enough snow. That leaves the springtime, which, aside from skating and sking, is the perfect time for just about anything in Central Park.
