Waterfall In The Loch by DezM

A part of the North Woods, the Loch was included in the original plan for Central Park and was therefore created by Olmsted and Vaux.

Noted as a great spot for bird watching, the Loch was intended to be a larger lake at the time of its construction, but has, over time, reverted back into a stream. Offering visitors a place of peace and tranquility in the busy Park, the Loch is bordered by Huddlestone Arch to the north and Glen Span Arch to the south.

The Central Park Loch extends from 102nd to 106th Street.
