Central Park is located in Manhattan, between 59th and 110th streets, and between 5th and 8th avenues. Central Park provides New Yorkers with a much-needed escape from the concrete, noise and traffic that is part of everyday life. What is perhaps most interesting about this 843-acre haven is that none of it originally existed where it now stands. The park is entirely manufactured and required 10 million cartloads of stone and earth to fill the area. Over 500,000 trees and shrubs were planted here and provide shelter to a surprising variety of wildlife. The Central Park Wildlife Conservation Center is home to over 100 species of animals from three different climate zones: the Tropics, the Polar Circle, and the California Coast. The Ramble is a section of the park with over 250 species of birds because of its strategic location on the Atlantic Migratory path. Concerts are regularly held within the park, and visitors can find places to enjoy everything from chess to baseball. In the winter, Wollman Rink, restored by Donald Trump, provides a place for ice skaters to enjoy a crisp afternoon while practicing their spins and entertaining the many onlookers. Numerous celebrities have apartments overlooking Central Park; and, like singer Madonna who often jogs here, add to the variety of attractions found within the park’s borders. .
