The park is operated and maintained by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. Situated in Astoria and adjacent to the Triborough (Robert F. Kennedy) and Hell Gate Bridges, the park contains New York City's oldest and largest swimming pool. The outdoor 54,450-square-foot (5,059 m2) pool, planned by Robert Moses, was used for qualifying events for the 1936 and 1964 Summer Olympics. Other attractions include bocce courts, fourteen tennis courts, two playgrounds, a skatepark, and one track for running. One of the playgrounds, Charybdis Playground, is across the Hell Gate from Scylla Point on Wards Island. The names stem from the dangerous whirlpools in the waters of the Hell Gate. On Independence Day, the Queens Symphony Orchestra plays in Astoria Park during the fireworks show. Upcoming events are posted on the parks department website. The park was formerly the site of a Native American settlement, and is close to where the General Slocum caught fire and sunk in 1904."

SplashDown Beach - Fishkill, NY - America's biggest little water park!
 
03:35
This is one sweet water park. Definitely one of the nicer ones I've visited with a great range of water slides and rides to try! We rode the half pipe which is the only one in NY, it was SO scary but awesome, I even did it again. We also really loved the Arctic Mammoth, a raft ride with lots of drops and vortex loops! SplashDown Beach is owned by the same owners of Rocking Horse Ranch, so they're no stranger to hospitality and it shows. This water resort is fantastic.

Copyright: ®Epic Heaven ♦ INSTAGRAM - http://instagram.com/EpicHeaven ♦ TWITTER - http://twitter.com/EpicHeavenHD ♦ FACEBOOK - https://www.facebook.com/EpicHeavenHD ♦ WEBSITE - https://www.EpicHeaven.com ---- Central Park - New York City, USA (HD) Central Park is an urban park in Manhattan, New York City. Central Park is the most visited urban park in the United States, with 40 million visitors in 2013, and one of the most filmed locations in the world. The park was established in 1857 on 778 acres of city-owned land. In 1858, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, a landscape architect and an architect, respectively, won a design competition to improve and expand the park with a plan they titled the "Greensward Plan". Construction began the same year and the park's first area was opened to the public in the winter of 1858. Construction continued during the American Civil War farther north, and was expanded to its current size of 843 acres in 1873. Central Park was designated a National Historic Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior in 1962. The Park, managed for decades by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, is currently managed by the Central Park Conservancy under contract with the municipal government in a public-private partnership. The Conservancy is a non-profit organization that contributes 75 percent of Central Park's $65 million annual budget and is responsible for all basic care of the 843-acre park. El Central Park es un parque urbano público situado en el distrito metropolitano de Manhattan, en la ciudad de Nueva York, Estados Unidos. El parque tiene forma rectangular y dimensiones aproximadas de 4000 x 800 m, siendo más grande que dos de las naciones más pequeñas del mundo; es casi dos veces más grande que Mónaco y casi ocho veces más que la Ciudad del Vaticano. Con unos 25 millones de visitantes al año, Central Park es el parque más visitado de los Estados Unidos (aunque el Fairmount Park de Filadelfia es diez veces más grande, Central Park tiene 2,5 veces más visitantes, y los 25 millones de visitantes anuales que recibe Central Park quintuplican los que visitan el Parque nacional del Gran Cañón, en Arizona6 ). Además, su aparición en numerosas películas y en programas de televisión, lo ha convertido en uno de los parques urbanos más famosos del mundo. El parque está dirigido por la Central Park Conservancy, una empresa privada sin ánimo de lucro, que tiene un contrato con el Departamento de Parques y Ocio de Nueva York.

It is located between the Upper West Side and Upper East Side, roughly bounded by Fifth Avenue on the east, Central Park West (Eighth Avenue) on the west, Central Park South (59th Street) on the south, and Central Park North (110th Street) on the north. Central Park is the most visited urban park in the United States, with 40 million visitors in 2013, and one of the most filmed locations in the world The park was established in 1857 on 778 acres (315 ha) of land acquired by the city. In 1858, landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted and architect/landscape designer Calvert Vaux won a design competition to improve and expand the park with a plan they titled the "Greensward Plan". Construction began the same year, and the park's first area was opened to the public in the winter of 1858. Construction north of the park continued during the American Civil War in the 1860s, and the park was expanded to its current size in 1873. After a period of decline in the early 20th century, Robert Moses started a program to clean up Central Park. Another decline in the late 20th century spurred the creation of the Central Park Conservancy in 1980, which refurbished many parts of the park during the 1980s and 1990s. Central Park was designated a National Historic Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior in 1963[5], which in April 2017 placed it on the tentative list for UNESCO World Heritage sites.[6] The park, managed for decades by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, is currently managed by the Central Park Conservancy under contract with the municipal government in a public-private partnership.

Central Park is one of those places that make New York such a great place to live. The huge park is located in the center of Manhattan. The park boasts several lakes, theaters, ice rinks, fountains, tennis courts, baseball fields, many playgrounds and other facilities. It is also home to the Central Park Zoo and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Especially during the weekends, when cars are not allowed into the park, Central Park is a welcome oasis in this hectic city. Copyright(©)Robert Thoomes 2012

Accessibility in NYC Parks

A11yNYC May 2 2017 - Accessibility in NYC Parks - Christopher Noel https://www.meetup.com/A11yNYC/events/238801342/ Transcript: http://isoc-ny.org/a11ynyc/a11ynyc_may2017.txt Good design can and should be accessible to people of all ages and abilities. Often landscape architects can design projects that appeal to a wider range of people using Universal Design concepts. Universal Design refers to broad-spectrum ideas meant to produce buildings, products and environments that are inherently accessible to older people, people without disabilities, and people with disabilities. In this presentation, it will be shown how NYC Parks accomplishes this across many levels of accessibility. Presenter: Christopher Noel is the ADA Accessibility Coordinator for New York City Parks and Recreation. In this role, he ensures that facilities, programs and services are accessible to people of all abilities. He is also responsible for providing technical assistance to the design staff and general public, and works closely to oversee the implementation and expansion of existing adaptive sports programs such as goalball for individuals with vision loss, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair football and wheelchair softball for persons with physical disabilities, adaptive sports carnivals for children with developmental disabilities/autism, a bi-annual Paralympic Track and Field Open for schoolchildren and indoor/outdoor adaptive swim classes designated for adults and seniors with disabilities. As NYC Parks is committed to providing inclusivity and accessibility at all park facilities throughout the city, Christopher ensures there are participation and recreational opportunities for many New Yorkers for years to come. ABOUT ACCESSIBILITY NYC New York City is home to virtually every type of person and every type of company on earth. Our group exists to advance accessibility and inclusive design. Our goal is to bring together NYC's accessibility community to share ideas, best practices, and our experiences. If you're interested in accessibility and inclusive design then we want you in this group. We meet monthly, our previous presentations are archived on this YouTube channel - https://youtube.com/a11ynyc Follow us on Twitter @A11YNYC https://twitter.com/a11ynyc

Central Park | New York City | Stock Footage [HD]
 
01:31
Central Park is an urban park in Manhattan, New York City. Central Park is the most visited urban park in the United States, and one of the most filmed locations in the world. The park was established in 1857 on 778 acres of city-owned land. In 1858, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, a landscape architect and an architect, respectively, won a design competition to improve and expand the park with a plan they titled the "Greensward Plan". Construction began the same year and the park's first area was opened to the public in the winter of 1858. Construction continued during the American Civil War farther north, and was expanded to its current size of 843 acres in 1873. Central Park was designated a National Historic Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior in 1962. The Park, managed for decades by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, is currently managed by the Central Park Conservancy under contract with the municipal government in a public-private partnership. The Conservancy is a non-profit organization that contributes 75 percent of Central Park's $65 million annual budget and is responsible for all basic care of the 843-acre park.

Central Park New York City. 2001
 
03:25
I made this video in 2001 on a Nice peaceful summers day in Central Park New York City. The Song "Long Stroll" From this royalty free music website http://incompetech.com/m/c/royalty-free/index.html?keywords=long+stroll+jazz&page=1 Central Park is a public park at the center of Manhattan in New York City, United States. The park initially opened in 1857, on 843 acres (3.41 km2) of city-owned land. In 1858, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux won a design competition to improve and expand the park with a plan they entitled the Greensward Plan. Construction began the same year, continued during the American Civil War, and was completed in 1873. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1963, the park is currently managed by the Central Park Conservancy under contract with the city government. The Conservancy is a nonprofit organization that contributes 85% of Central Park's $37.4 million dollar annual budget, and employs 80% of the park's maintenance staff. Central Park today Central Park, which has been a National Historic Landmark since 1963, was designed by landscape designer and writer Frederick Law Olmsted and the English architect Calvert Vaux in 1858 after winning a design competition. They also designed Brooklyn's Prospect Park. Central Park is bordered on the north by West 110th Street, on the south by West 59th Street, on the west by Eighth Avenue. Along the park's borders, these streets are known as Central Park North, Central Park South, and Central Park West respectively. Only Fifth Avenue along the park's eastern border retains its name. Visitors The park, which receives approximately thirty-five million visitors annually, is the most visited urban park in the United States. It was opened on 770 acres (3.1 km2) of city-owned land and was expanded to 843 acres (3.41 km2; 1.317 sq mi). It is 2.5 miles (4 km) long between 59th Street (Central Park South) and 110th Street (Central Park North), and is 0.5 miles (0.8 km) wide between Fifth Avenue and Central Park West. It is similar in size to San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, Vancouver's Stanley Park, and Munich's Englischer Garten. Maintenance The park is maintained by the Central Park Conservancy, a private, not-for-profit organization that manages the park under a contract with the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, in which the president of the Conservancy is ex officio Administrator of Central Park. Today, the conservancy employs four out of five maintenance and operations staff in the park. It effectively oversees the work of both the private and public employees under the authority of the Central Park administrator, (publicly appointed), who reports to the parks commissioner, conservancy's president. As of 2007, the conservancy had invested approximately $450 million in the restoration and management of the park; the organization presently contributes approximately 85% of Central Park's annual operating budget of over $37 million. The system was functioning so well that in 2006 the conservancy created the Historic Harlem Parks initiative, providing horticultural and maintenance support and mentoring in Morningside Park, St. Nicholas Park, Jackie Robinson Park, and Marcus Garvey Park.

Gateway National Recreation Area Virtual Tour
 
02:57
As profiled in Ken Burnss new PBS documentary, THE NATIONAL PARKS: AMERICAS BEST IDEA, the threats facing Americas national parks decades ago are many of the same threats they face today, including chronic funding shortfalls, air and water pollution, demands for inappropriate uses of parkland and the trade-offs between increased access and damage to the natural or cultural treasures they preserve. During National Parks Week NYC, National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) and its supporters aim to raise awareness of the challenges to our national parks -- and the opportunity for each of us to help protect them for our children and grandchildren. Carmichael Photography (http://www.bobcarmichael.com) generously produced this virtual tour of four of the national park sites throughout New York City, which we've dubbed "Hidden Treasures." The videos highlight the individuals who help protect these sites, some of the challenges to these parks, and most importantly -- the history and compelling stories of each of them. We hope you'll be inspired to visit and enjoy. For more on NPCA visit http://www.npca.org For more on National Parks Week NYC visit http://www.feelfree.org
