Here's a list of St. Clair, MO parks..

http://www.stclairmo.com/stclairmo/parks.htm

I grew up in the St. Clair/ Lonedell area. I don't remember a through truss bridge in any of st. clair's parks.

Or could it perhaps be in a park outside of town? or in/ around a different town?

The only landmark bridge in the area I remember, and is still much talked about is Brun's bridge :-?

If you can find it on a map of St. Clair, it would be great to add it to this site.

IF I'm not mistaken, the bridge sits in a park in St. Clair as a monument to my Uncle, Danny Scott. who was killed in Vietnam in 1968. He used to live right up the road from the bridge.
