Bridge Documentation

Only the stone towers of this long-lost suspension bridge remain, with a modern suspension bridge spanning today. This webpage and listing is for the original stone towers only. The actual suspension bridge seen here today with its galvanized steel towers is modern and has no heritage value whatsoever. Reportedly, the stone towers once held a suspension bridge that dated to 1856. The current bridge reportedly dates to 1993. If the 1856 suspension bridge was still standing in 1993, the demolition and replacement of the 1856 bridge would have represented the destruction of one of the most significant heritage bridges in Canada. As an 1856 suspension bridge it would have been one of the oldest suspension bridges in North America. It is unclear why such a rare historic bridge located in a park setting would ever be replaced rather than restored.

If anyone has photos of the 1856 bridge please contact us.
