Bridge No. 24


 

One of the oldest examples of cast iron bridges in America, Bridge No. 24 is located near the south gate house of the Reservoir and spans the Bridle Path. It was restored by the Central Park Conservancy in 1989, and again in 2012.

Bridge No. 24 was originally designed to permit pedestrians to stroll through this area of the Park without having to encounter any of the equestrian traffic on the Bridal Path below. Today it is a favorite spot for runners to warm up due to its proximity to the Reservoir running track.
