Bridge No. 27

Bridge No. 27 is one of three decorative and intricate cast-iron bridges that carry pedestrians above the bridle path to the gleaming waters of the Reservoir.

A stunning example of Victorian decorative arts, Bridge No. 27 was designed by Calvert Vaux in 1864.

While most of the bridges in Central Park have both a name and a number, three do not: Bridge No. 27, Bridge No. 24, and Bridge No. 28, which all span the bridle path that surrounds the Reservoir.
