About the venue
Bow Bridge is a perfect option if you're looking for a truly iconic ceremony location. Exchange your vows standing on this grand, sweeping bridge, or choose from two different locations adjacent to the bridge. Each of these ceremony locations provides majestic views across the lake and into the park.
Central Park is filled with many bridges, with no two bridges being the same. Bow Bridge is by far the most popular in the park as it serves as the main bridge for the park, connecting the Ramble to Cherry Hill. The bridge stretches across the lake and is commonly used in films and TV, including Made of Honor, Enchanted, and Spider Man 3, as a romantic rendezvous point.
Bow Bridge is named after the bridge’s graceful arch, reminiscent of an archer’s bow. The Victorian-era design adds that extra romantic touch to your ceremony. The aerial views of the park and bridge are breathtaking, making Bow Bridge ideal for photography. The nearby Loeb Boathouse Restaurant is an excellent option for an after-ceremony celebration.
The bridge is just a short walk into the park from the West 72nd entrance. Bow Bridge is a high-traffic area as the park's main bridge, with plenty of park visitors. Our celebrants find that park visitors are respectful in giving them the space to celebrate their special moment. If you want a more intimate ceremony, consider Wagner Cove, Ladies Pavillion, Gapstow Bridge, or Harlem Meer for your ceremony.
Wheelchair accessibility is available for Bow Bridge. The accessible route from The Ramble is a bit longer, while there is a bit of a slope to manage from Cherry Hill. Restrooms for celebrants and guests are located nearby at Bethesda Terrace and Fountain, with handicap-accessible restrooms available in Mineral Springs and at Delacorte Theater.
