Seven Arches

A classical structure in English landscape tradition, Seven Arches crowns English Park. Behind arched doors, machinery once pumped water from a 220-foot deep well to a cistern higher up the hill. Gravity brought water back down to fountains in English Park – water flowed from Seven Arches down to the Japanese Overlook, then to the Step Fountain, ending finally at the Key Fountain. On the other side, water flowed from Seven Arches down to the Mercury Loggia and then to the Key Fountain. Throughout the year, there is a beautiful view from above Seven Arches of the Arboretum, the Wissahickon Valley, and Militia Hill.
