It is also the site of free concerts every summer by the New York Philharmonic and the Metropolitan Opera, and has also hosted concerts, movie screenings, and a papal mass.
  2. See the zoo that the movie Madagascar made famous.
  3. Visit Strawberry Fields that was designed as a garden of peace in honor of John Lennon.

From the castle's tower, you'll find breathtaking views of Central Park and the city. The castle also houses the Henry Luce Nature Observatory, which features exhibits on the birds and other wildlife found in the Park.

That was the 3rd day of my New York trip with my mom. It was a sunny day and we had picnic in sheep meadows and also sunbathed there. Sheep meadow was really comfy and feels great to lay on the grass. After that, we went to the loan boathouse and rent a boat. Rowing was hard but really cool and burnt some calories. Overall, Central Park is amazing and the biggest and best park I have ever seen.
