Rustic Shelters

Designed to blend in with the Park’s natural surroundings, rustic shelters feature beautiful craftsmanship and wood materials that complement the environment. Many of the rustic shelters skirt the Lake shore, providing a shady haven in which to relax and enjoy the view.

Rustic Shelter on the Lake


The newest and largest rustic shelter in the Park is the Arbor (map it), which sits on the bank of the Lullwater along the Lullwater Nature Trail. These new rustic shelters were created from archival photos with the same methods and materials used by Olmsted and Vaux.

There are three additional shelters along the Lake. One is located near the Parkside and Ocean Avenues entrance (map it). A second is at the tip of the Peninsula (map it), and the third near the Park Circle entrance along West Lake Drive (map it).
