Beckwoods Drive Bridge

There is a very faded sign saying "private drive". I noticed it when taking photos on the way out. I don't think it is to be believed, as this is an access to what seems to be a public park. The park was closed, but maybe only temporarily.

It appears the bridge has been repaired, and not to badly! Nice to see that it wasn't just torn down and replaced.
