Finally stopped after passing this wonderful little park a gazillion times. The walk across the bridge is fun for all and especially for photographers of scenery, waterways & birds. Very scenic sights as you cross from one side to the other!

Parking has 4 spots and we enjoyed our quick walk across bridge. There is a park and beach area across bridge where we saw some people splashing in water and chilling.
