Located on a short obscure path east of the Pond, the underpass of this ornamental arch is generally dark and usually flooded after a heavy rain.
Once you’ve walked through the underpass you will notice a short flight of stairs on the east side that connects pedestrians to Wien Walk with theWildlife Center in view.
