Rustic Bridge

There are a number of small foot bridges located throughout the park that are designed to look like primitive "rustic" truss bridges, although the woodwork actually conceals conventional contemporary beam supporting structure.

Ladies' Pond Bridge

Wooden beam pedestrian bridge
Carries a pedestrian path over a small stream leading into the Lake just north of the west 77th Street entrance to the park

This little foot bridge is just to the west of the Balcony Bridge and just to the northeast of the Eaglevale Bridge. The guard rails look like pony trusses but do not appear to be part of the bridge's supporting structure. This is the southernmost of a number of similar wooden bridges in the northern half of the park, all with different guard rail designs.

Loch Foot Bridges

Wooden beam and stone pedestrian bridges
Carry pedestrian paths over Montayne's Rivulet in The Loch

The Loch is a lovely, secluded woodland area just to the north of North Meadow. Montayne's Rivulet is a stream which is fed by The Pool on the west side of the park. The Rivulet passes through a series of pools and waterfalls, flows under Huddlestone Arch and is carried via a man-made tunnel under Lasker Rink to empty into Harlem Meer at the northeast corner of the park . Montayne's Rivulet is crossed by a sequence of wooden and stone foot bridges. The wooden bridges appear to be pony trusses, but are just simple beam bridges, all with unique guard rail designs.
