We also visited Central Park twice! The weather was amazingly nice. I brought my Brazilian Sarong with the iconic Brazil flag design and used it to keep the damp earth from getting me wet. A picnic sarong is perfect for any type of outdoor park terrain- whether it be grass, sand, dirt, etc. The sarong or "canga" as Brazilians call it, was very light and easy to carry.
Sarongs are a definite MUST when traveling. Whether it's a long weekend in another city or a two month trip through Europe, be sure to pack a sarong for any outdoor picnic experience! Take a look at the pictures while lounging in Central Park my sarong.
