Does anyone know the average gradient of central park?

0%, assuming one begins and ends in the same spot.

Somehow I think this isn't what you're asking, though. As a rough guess, Harlem hill is about 4% and Cat Hill is maybe 2-2.5%.

A very anonymous cow!

Refer to greenswardparks.org

"If you have an accurate means to measure distances (such as your bike computer or Google Earth's measuring tool), you can also manually calculate the gradient of any hill in CP by referring to the Greensward Foundation's excellent topographical map:

That's the map I used to calculate grades

And I had the map framed with a guilded frame. What a treasure!
