Ratings and Reviews

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!



This is app is fantastic. It shows you all the small paths to walk around the park. I love that it tells you about the different trees and flowers as well! Excellent for those who want to colored the park, off the tourist path.

Full disclosure, I know Ken Chaya, was present when the app was a map, and shared with Ken my concerns about tree ID its initial version — difficult moving between the tree ikons and the ikon index. This problem has been resolved brilliantly. Clickable ikon ID together with the “find me” feature makes identifying a particular tree really doable. As for the review stating clicking on features produced a tree, I found that little micro adjustments in finger placement produced the desired outcome. In sum this is a remarkable app which will open the majesty of a great park to anyone who cares to look.
