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.
