“Fun Little Park in Felton - Covered Bridge, Playground and Picnics”

Felton Covered Bridge Park
Ranked #3 of 14 things to do in Felton
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 August 2014

We visited the Felton Covered Bridge Park; we did not plan to but saw the sign and decided we should stop and see the covered bridge.

The bridge is considered to be the tallest covered bridge in the United States. It once was the main entry point for Felton, but now it is just part of the park.

One can walk through the covered bridge. On the far end (furthest from the park) there are some windows in the bridge that look out.

In the park itself, there is a playground for children and a picnic table area under the trees.

Parking is in a lot at the park and is free.

A real historical treat! Just when we thought most all the USA covered bridges were in New England, just south of San Francisco along Route 9, we experience this over-century-old structure. Built in 1892, almost entirely of redwood, the Felton Covered Bridge crosses the San Lorenzo River and is approximately eighty feet long. Why is this the tallest? Possibly, because extremely high-wheeled wagons forded the San Lorenzo during the dry season, the merchants could not afford two sets of different-sized wagon wheels. A very worthwhile and photogenic visit!

Took a walk over the old Felton Covered Bridge, and let our grandson have some time in the playground. Nice setting for a family picnic and a view of local history

The Felton covered bridge is worth a 5 min stop if you're already in the area and haven't seen a covered bridge before. Unlike most, this one is right in the middle of town and there's only a little stream running beneath it. Nothing special, but worth a quick look.
