                                          A HISTORY OF CENTRAL PARK

Central Park is a large park within the U.S. city of New York, New York State. It has an area of 3.4 square kilometers and is located in the district of Manhattan.

The park, which existed for 150 years, is considered by many New Yorkers an oasis within the great forest of skyscrapers in the region. It is a place where people can slow down the frantic New York: people can sit on a bench and read the newspaper, chat with friends, play games, ride a bike or playing with children.

With approximately twenty-five million visitors annually, Central Park is the most visited park in the city, and appeared in many films and many television progamas, making it known worldwide.

It was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, who later created Brooklyn's Prospect Park. Although the park looks natural, it is in fact almost entirely landscaped and contains several artificial lakes, hiking trails, two ice rinks, a living shrine, and several fields.
