Simply arrive at the departure location at 59th & 6th Ave. and look for the carriages with the “Central Park Sightseeing” sticker. For any questions, call the operator at 212-975-0785 from 9 am – 7 pm daily.
In Central Park, horseback riding is permitted year-round during regular park hours. The recently reconstructed Central Park bridle path is more than six miles long and encircles the Reservoir as well as the North Meadow.
Department of Transportation. No person shall leave a horse unbridled or unattended in a street or unenclosed place unless the horse is securely fastened, or harnessed to a vehicle with wheels so secured as to prevent it from being dragged faster than a walk.
Central Park is generally safe for travelers, especially during daylight hours. Newly car-free, Central Park is now less dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists than it used to be, though nighttime can bring other dangerous elements into the park.

We paid $12 for adult tickets but only visited the zoo. For $18 there are extra attractions to visit.
Children 2 and under are always admitted for free. A more affordable option is to get general admission tickets, which give you access to all the zoo’s animal exhibits. These cost $13.95 for visitors 13 and over; $8.95 for children 3 – 12; and $10.95 for seniors. Sadly the Central Park Zoo has no free admission day.
I recommend bringing an umbrella or rain jacket and wearing a sweater or long sleeve shirt with long pants and waterproof boots. Rain boots are not essential. New Yorkers will really only wear them when it is raining, other than that it is difficult to walk around a lot in between rain showers.
