My family and I spent our first afternoon in Manhattan walking almost the entire length of Central Park. It is 2.5 miles long and half a mile wide! We were in there for about three hours. We weren’t powerwalking or anything, just taking our time and looking at stuff. Our feet were killing us by the end. Almost at the northern edge of the Park is the Conservatory Garden, Central Park’s only formal garden. Comprised of 6 acres, the Garden takes its name from a conservatory that stood on the site from 1898 to 1934, when the head gardener used the glasshouses to harden hardwood cuttings for the park’s plantings. This is according to wikipedia.
