Central Park, New York City

15 of 30

The concrete jungle of New York has made room over the years for many notable green spaces, including Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, the elevated High Line in Chelsea, and Governors Island. But Central Park remains the crowd-pleaser. According to Douglas Blonsky, president and CEO of Central Park Conservancy, “New Yorkers use Central Park’s drives for running and bicycling, its lawns for picnicking and relaxing, its woodlands for exploring and relaxation, and its water bodies for rowboating—the park is truly a shared backyard for every New Yorker.”
