Ladies’ Pavilion in Central Park

Ladies Pavilion Central Park Information

The Ladies’ Pavilion is a lovely art deco wrought iron gazebo beside the Lake.  The closest entrance to the Ladies’ Pavilion is the one right by John Lennon’s old home, the Dakota, at Central Park West and 72nd Street.  It is a very popular wedding location, and my personal favorite, it is the where I got married. There are seats inside and it has a pretty gray slate roof and charming wrought iron details. The roof can protect a small group from any light rain.  It is accessed by walking down a short paved path with trees either side, so it’s works well for a bride to walk down here to make her entrance for her guests.  It has benches inside and because it is somewhat enclosed it does provide some privacy.

The Ladies’ Pavilion was originally designed in 1871 as a shelter for trolley passengers and sat near the Park’s 8th Avenue and 59th Street entrance. When construction began on the monument that stands there now, the pavilion was relocated to it’s current location. It is so-called because during the Winter the Ladies’ would change into their ice skates here, before skating on the Lake. Wedding photographs taken around the Ladies’ Pavilion will have the Lake and the Manhattan skyline in the background, and it is a short walk from Bethesda Fountain and Bow Bridge.

Below are some wedding photographs from the Ladies’ Pavilion.  These photos are intended to show the location in as much useful detail as possible for any couples considering a wedding there, rather than show the couple.  Please feel free to email me,  if you would like any further advice or information on this location.
