Directions to the Central Park Tennis Center

Here are the best ways to the Central Park Tennis Center once you are in the park area (uptown Manhattan):


From the West side of Central Park - 5 min. walk

  • Enter the park from 93rd St. & Central Park West (CPW).

  • Bear slightly left when the road forks and head toward the East side of the park.

  • Cross over the West Drive (with bicycles and runners) being careful to look both ways since mostly no one pays attention to the lights.

  • Continue walking East on the path toward the Tennis Center, which is a 1 story small blonde brick building by the tennis courts (which should be in front of you on your left).

  • The bathrooms are on the right edge of the Tennis Center once you are facing the building.

  • Continue walking past the Tennis Center/bathrooms just a bit and we'll be on the grass on the RIGHT. 


From the East side of Central Park - 9 min. walk

  • Enter the park from 97th St. & 5th Ave.

  • Go straight toward the West side of the park.

  • Cross the East Drive (with bicycles and runners) being careful to look both ways since mostly no one pays attention to the lights.

  • Turn left on the asphalt path immediately after crossing the drive and walk up a short hill.

  • Make the first right just before the bridle path (dirt path) and reservoir.

  • Keep the park benches on your left and tennis courts on your right. Stay left when the road forks (twice).

  • Head straight toward the Tennis Center which is a small 1 story blonde brick building by the tennis courts (which should be ahead on your right).

  • The bathrooms are on the right edge of the Tennis Center (if you are facing the building).

  • The meet up spot is on the grass on your left just BEFORE you get to the Tennis Center and bathrooms.
