Burns Park Covered Bridge
Posted February 12, 2007, by Fred Garcia (fandsgarcia [at] gmail [dot] com)

Visited this bridge on 23 Jan. 2007 at 4:00 pm. Very attractive setting on a slow bayou. One can drive across and go to a turn around area and park.

This is a nice replica of a covered bridge. The supporting girders are large steel I-beams, otherwise its constructed of all wood components; 'cept the roof shingles.

There is a gazebo upstream and another low footbridge downstream. A hiking/jogging trail starts into the woods on the north side.

Romantic feel, almost want to uncork a bottle of wine and slice up some cheese.

Webmaster's note: The photos that were here have been incorporated into the main site.

I love that bridge...my children and i went there the first week in august 2005. It is very beautiful there. I also took a couple of pictures. I'm hoping to visit there next year.
