The few locations in Avengers: Infinity War that were actually shot outside of a studio are few and far between. But regardless of where they seem to be, they were all (mostly) shot in Atlanta, GA – including the scenes of Tony and Pepper on the Central Park Bridle Path.
LOCATION: Central Park Bridle Path (Piedmont Park, Piedmont Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30309)
SHOW: Avengers Infinity War (2018)
For many months I swore that this sequence was shot at Central Park. You can see the reservoir, and the buildings across from the reservoir. I mean it’s obviously Central Park! There’s a sign! Sadly, Piedmont Park in Atlanta served as the iconic location.
The filming took place on the west side of the park by the Peace Monument (erected in 1911 to commemorate the efforts made over a thirty year period to bring about unity between the North and the South at the end of the Civil War). The North Soccer Field #2 serves as a stand in for Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. And the filming takes place on the walkways between the two.
Two things ended up giving this away for me. The first is that the reverse angles of Doctor Strange were definitely shot at the 14th St NE Gate to the park. The second being that I could not match an exact location in Central Park for this sequence. It just would not work.
All the other exterior location sequences in New York were shot in and around the city. So, once I started looking, the Park fit the bill exactly. You can even see the tree that Tony and Pepper stand in front of on the Google Street View.
