Description 

There turned out to be 4 separate bridges in the park. It seemed just as easy to leave as one entry. Not sure where the 1901 date is from. The park was established in 1927. The look like CCC work but no info at park. The stone looks as thought it came from a quarry area near one of the bridges.
