Oak Bridge at Bank Rock Bay

The charming and elegant Oak Bridge at Bank Rock Bay stretches from the northern edge of the Lake into the western edge of the wild Ramble.

Designed by Calvert Vaux, Oak Bridge is one of the larger and more elegant of the Park's wooden bridges and offers stunning views of the midtown skyline. The footbridge was originally built of white oak—hence its name—and featured panels of decorative cast iron set in the railings. Created as one of the major entrances to the Ramble, it has become a popular Park destination for bird watchers.
