Spanning a total of 36 (!) acres, the Ramble is located mid-park, between 73 and 79th streets. Unlike the other picnic locations, the Ramble is no stranger to "rough" terrain, home to hiking trails, pedestrian bridges and the infamous ramble rock and chess rock. The Ramble's most unique quality is that it was man-made! Between its canopies to its fountain, designers toiled long hours over the construction of one of the park's first locations. It's also home to a plethora of local fauna, with over 230 different types of birds spotted. 
 

Plan a picnic here if: You're feeling adventurous. Set up camp at the ramble if you want to feel like you've left the confines of Central Park for the afternoon. 

What's nearby: The Ramble is located mid-park, making it a breeze to navigate your way around for an eventful afternoon. The nearest park highlights are: the Central Park Lake, the Loeb Boathouse, the Belvedere Castle and the Shakespeare Garden. Although it'll seem like you've escaped the urban life, civilization lies not very far away! The Ramble is within a fifteen minute walk from the Museum Mile and 5th Avenue to the east, and the New York Historical Society and the Museum of Natural History to the west. 

How to get there: Since this getaway spot lies in central crossroads of the park, there are many transportation options to ensure your commute is effortless: B,C to 72nd Street and Central Park West, and walk east into the park until you hit the Ramble, or the 6 to E 77th and Lexington and walk west. 

Closest restrooms? There's a bathroom located to the North-East entrance of the Ramble - but it's not open year-round. When in doubt, take a stroll to the Loeb Boathouse.

Rules you should know about: The Ramble's notoriety has sparked the creation of rules to help control cleanliness and littering. At each entrance to the ramble, picnic-goers will find trash cans to clean up after their picnic fun!
