The Lake

Local nameThe Lake
LocationNew York City, USA

The Ramble and Lake are two geographical features of Central Park in Manhattan, New York City. Part of Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux's 1857 Greensward Plan for Central Park, the features are located on the west side of the park between the 66th and 79th Street transverses,

The 38-acre Ramble, located on the north shore of the Lake, was intended as a woodland walk through highly varied topography, a "wild garden" away from carriage drives and bridle paths, to be wandered in, or to be viewed as a "natural" landscape. The Ramble includes several winding paths and rustic bridges, and formerly contained a small cave. Historically, it has been frequented for both birdwatching and private homosexual encounters.
