The Loch

Loch

Bearing the Scottish name for “Lake,” the Loch is a flowing stream with three magnificent cascades created by dams. It winds through the Ravine and under Glen Span and Huddlestone arches before connecting to the Harlem Meer.

The Loch is one of several man-made water bodies integral to Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux’s naturalistic vision for the Park. It is an outlier, however, in that is partially fed by a natural watercourse formerly known as Montayne’s Rivulet.
