Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic app. Really wonderful.
I was a bit worried it would be out of date (software wise) but this app works flawlessly in 2021 both on iPhone and my iPad. And from what I’ve seen, it’s pretty up-to-date on trees too, based on my limited use. I do wish it had progressed more, with a visual glossary, better zoom (north woods are a bit too dense to easily find trees), etc, but already there’s an enormous amount of work gone into it for such a little price. Every park in the world should have such an app.
One of those best-kept beautiful secrets!!!
This app is genius! This will make even native New Yorkers fall more deeply in love with this park.
Some people may think that Central Park is like a sculpture, carved out of wild land, but it was totally designed, largely out of swampland, by Frederick Law Olmstead. Every rock, every path, every sculpture, every bridge, every lawn, every body of water, every tree and it's placement - all designed.
This map is completely true to the park as it stands today. The artwork is gorgeous and the app works perfectly. All aspects of this app are just as well designed as the park!
I love all the inside information about areas and sculptures but my favorite part about it is the "find me" button. You will never be lost!
I have a hard copy of the map hanging in my office – beautiful!
An Extraordinary App

You can locate yourself instantly anywhere. If you want to know the species of the tree you are standing under, this app will tell you for virtually every tree in the park. It is a must have for everyone entering Central Park to maximize their experience of that beautiful space.
