  • The Rambles is located in the centre of Central Park, and is a natural oasis of 38 acres, an unmissable destination for birdwatchers, as it is a haven for migratory birds, in fact there are over 250 species. Small paths wind through the rich vegetation, streams, bridges and rocky outcrops, here you will find many varieties of native plants, including the American Sycamore, Oaks and Wilds, but also many exotic. A real corner of peace amid the chaos of Manhattan.

  • It is a very large wooded area in the middle of Central Park between Shakespeare Garden and Belvedere Castle, particularly loved by birdwatchers for the many species of birds that inhabit it. The walks that wind along the paths that branch up and down The Ramble are many and give an idea of nature oasis in many places, to the point that seems almost to be far away from New York and to be instead in a forest of Vermont!

  • Definitely a neat little spot to relax and escape from the bustle of the city for a while. Climbing the ramble is a fun little exercise and I thought the view was pretty good. The walk to get to the Ramble is super pretty, and trails are provided so you can explore the little stream that passes nearby it. If you’re looking for a place to relax in Central Park, this is a good place to do it!
  • Really nice spot in central park to unwind with a bit of birdwatching. Cold but rewarding particularly near the bird feeders with loads to see. Favourite this time was a white bellied nuthatch. Very common but really cute.
