I used to live on Haney street back in 1989-1990. I remember going over that bridge so many times. Glad they built a new one.

This area has been cleaned up, the city is having a new pedestrian bridge designed to replace the swinging bridge. Construction should begin and be completed in 2009. This bridge will link two sides of town and Haney street park.

I remember as a kid my friends and I would venture down to the old swinging bridge, run across it and play in the river.

I was fortunate enough to once again visit this place that is so warm in my memory. My brother and I visited family in 1986 or 87. We had family with us and took them to our play grounds as kid's, the Chat Dump we use to climb on and other places only we knew about, or we thought.
