Ramble Stone Arch


The Ramble Stone Arch in Central Park

 

This rough stone arch stands in a cleft between two high rock outcrops. It is considered one of the most picturesque of Central Park's bridges.

Nestled in a dense nook of trees and shrubbery on the west side of the Ramble, the rough stone arch carries a narrow walkway and a footpath below. Built in large-part of boulders found in the Park, the arch measures five feet across and more than 13 feet high, with a nine-foot underpass. In the 19th century an opening on the eastern side of the arch contained steps to an underground cave that was bordered up in the 1920s.
