Visiting Central Park
When it first opened in the winter of 1858, New York City's Central Park was the first major landscaped public park in America. The Park's designers, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, beat out 32 competitors in an open competition with their vision of an urban park landscape that included Sheep Meadow, Bethesda Fountain, Belvedere Tower, the lake, and the sunken traverse roads in the park's center.
Today, it spans 843 acres of land in the heart of Manhattan, the city's busiest borough. Over 42 million people visit Central Park each year.
