Central Park
"Central Park is a public greenspace and park in the heart of Manhattan in New York City. With approximately twenty-five million visitors each year, it is the most visited urban park in the United States. The park initially opened in 1857, on 770 acres 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 and was completed in 1873.

Central Park, designated a National Historic Landmark in 1963, is currently managed by the Central Park Conservancy under contract with the city government."
