🏃♀️🌳🏃♂️ Let’s talk running in the heart of New York City! There is no better place to start running than Central Park.
It’s a place where the hustle and bustle of the city gives way to natural beauty, and runners have a unique opportunity to feel part of the larger world.
Central Park is open every day from 6:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m., so it’s perfect for morning and evening jogging.
🌿Green alleys, a lake, bridges, and even cascading waterfalls – every corner of Central Park is made for running. You can choose a completely different route, from an easy lap around the lake to a long run through the park. Whatever your fitness level, there is a route for everyone.
🌆 In addition to the beauty of nature, Central Park offers unique views of the city’s skyscrapers, especially at dawn and dusk. Running in the morning sunlight or the evening glow of the city lights is a unique experience for any runner.
🥾 The park also appeals to those who want to combine running with other activities. The many trails provide opportunities for jogging as well as biking, picnicking or outdoor yoga.
💡Tip: Don’t forget to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated and a camera to capture the amazing views you’ll see along the way.
If you are planning on visiting New York City and love to run, Central Park should definitely be on your list of places to jog. Not only is it a great way to get fit, but you can also enjoy the natural beauty and energy of this amazing city.
The unspoken rule in Central Park is to run counterclockwise and be aware of cyclists in the area.
