Spend the Day at Central Park, Located Minutes from Hotel Belleclaire

The green playground of New York City, Central Park is one of the world's most famous and largest urban parks. A National Historic Landmark, Central Park spans more than 840 acres and nearly 1.5 miles of Manhattan, beginning at 59th Street near Columbus Circle and just a few blocks from Hotel Belleclaire.

 

A must-visit during your NYC stay, Central Park offers something for everyone, all year-round. Take the kids to one of the many playgrounds, rent a bike or stroll through the nature trails, stop by the boathouse for a romantic gondola ride, or see the statues, monuments, memorials, and hidden gems throughout the park. Central Park also offers a full calendar of free events for the whole family, from fitness classes and summer movie nights to the renowned Shakespeare in the Park and SummerStage theater and concerts series in the summer. Explore it all easily from our hotel, located less than a ten-minute walk from Central Park.
