Central & Battery parks

This weekend’s visit to Central Park was one we’ve wanted to do for a while – to start at the top and walk all the way down. The park itself is 55 blocks long so we got out at 110th Street and set off. In the first 10 minutes we saw very large geese and a turtle – almost more exciting than seeing a squirrel! We’d never walked beside the Jackie Onassis reservoir – I knew it was huge, but it’s really quite big for a ake in a city park.

After we’d popped out the other end of the park we continued on our walk home, a further 25 blocks – didn’t think about it until we got home that we’d walked 80 blocks in a day!

It was a pretty full weekend – the next day we walked all around the other end of the island – through the Financial District and around Battery Park. Lots of sunshine and blue sky.
