Autumn colours in New York’s Central Park

The green heart of Manhattan, Central Park covers 843 acres of seriously expensive New York land. It’s an escape from the bustling city for both New Yorkers and tourists, with over thirty-five million visitors each year. The park is made up of a mixture of lakes, lawns and woodland, with walking tracks and bridleways running throughout. You can rock climb, ice skate, watch a theatre performance, visit the zoo or go kayaking all without leaving the park. And in autumn the leaves of oak, maple and elm trees turn a rainbow of vibrant reds and oranges. Some of the best colours are quieter northern part of the park, where you can kick leaves your way through piles of autumn leaves to your heart’s content.

    So pretty! I live in southern California, so I’ve never actually seen “fall colors.” I’m going to Boston for the first time at the end of this month, and I can’t wait to see the colors in person!
