Bethesda Terrace and Fountain in Central Park

Bethesda Terrace and Fountain Central Park Information

Bethesda Fountain is considered the heart of Central Park, and sits in the middle of Bethesda Terrace.  It is one of the best-known spots in Central Park with the famous Angel of the Waters statue on the top.  It is in a central location down beautiful stone steps from a road which pedicabs and horses use.  These stone steps provide an excellent grand entrance for a bride, or a great location to photograph of your group.  It can also be accessed via a long and gently sloping pathway.

Because of this central location it is a very busy spot. We can obtain permits for weddings here, but it would still remain a thoroughfare for the public, so passers-by may well stop and congratulate you. It is the least private spot for a wedding but affords lovely views of boats on the Lake and Bethesda Terrace itself.  The beautiful carvings in the sandstone of the steps and walls represent the four seasons and the times of the day.  A wedding could take place right beside the Fountain, in a corner by the steps, almost under the arches, or on the grass slope overlooking the paved Terrace area.

Below are some wedding photographs from Bethesda Terrace and Fountain and the surrounding area.  These photos are intended to show the location in as much useful detail as possible for any couples considering a wedding there.  Please feel free to email me,  if you would like any further advice or information on this location.
