New York City’s Central Park spans 840 acres and is brimming with organic and man made treasures—bridges, ponds, gardens, reservoirs, performance spaces, castles, play spaces, pedestrian and vehicular paths, a zoo and much more. The natural sanctuary, designed by Frederick Law Olmstead and Calvert Vaux, is often hailed as a masterpiece of landscape design with thoughtfully planned out pathways for different forms of circulation.

Central Park is one of my favorite places in the city, standing in a juxtaposition to all of the city’s hardscape. Its idyllic setting is perfect for strolling, people watching, recreation, picnics, and inspiring new design ideas.
