Bow Bridge

05-29 Bow BridgeThe graceful, cast-iron confection that arches over The Lake is Central Park’s most beloved and most photogenic span. The oldest cast-iron bridge in the park, the ironwork is by the same craftsmen who did the Capitol in Washington, DC and it is complete with unseen cannonballs set in its base, designed to allow for expansion during the change of seasons. Bow Bridge is a short walk from Bethesda Terrace and serves to connect the Ramble to Cherry Hill.
