Bridle Path

Pressure from local critics led the designers of Central Park, Olmsted and Vaux, to separate carriage drives, pedestrian walks and equestrian paths from each other. Assisted by Jacob Wrey Mould, Vaux designed more than forty bridges to eliminate grade crossings between the various routes. The bridle paths remain, although the poor condition of the paths, crowding of the paths by joggers, and the absence of any local stables have made horses a rare sight.
