Carnegie presents dozens of vocal and symphonic performances each year from some of the world's finest orchestras and solo performers whilst Central Park offers a true urban oasis, which includes a zoo, running and biking trails, playgrounds, ball fields, and an ice-skating rink during winter months. It is also a great place to enjoy a picnic or one of the famous horse-drawn carriage rides. Walking tours of Central Park are available to hotel guests and take in all the park's most popular attractions.
