Glen Span Arch

The walk from the Harlem Meer to the Pool was designed to be one of the great landscape sequences in Central Park. With the construction of Lasker swimming pool and skating rink, the flow was obstructed. If one starts at the area known as the pool and walks east one will discover the beauty of the numerous waterfalls, bridges and arches that are located along the route. Included in this, is the Glen Span Arch, which was designed to act as a frame for the landscaped area. The pathway under the arch is a favorite route of bird watchers in the spring as they follow the narrow stream.
