Whether on foot or on horseback no one
can miss the massive unique structure of
the Eaglevale Arch as it divides Naturalists'
Walk and Azalea Walk.
The only double arch in Central Park serves
two purposes as it conveys an access road
to the West Drive from Central Park West
over a pedestrian path and over the bridle
trail. Originally, the pedestrian path was a
narrow section of the Lake going from
Balcony Bridge to Ladies’ Pond, which was
filled in around 1936. Its site is currently
the location of Azalea Walk.
At the entrance of Naturalists Gate,
between the two arches, on either side,
are balconies resting on buttresses.
