Description 

The Peter Courtney Minto Island Bridge was the final critical connection in the creation of a combined 1,300 acre interconnected park system along the Willamette River in Salem. The bridge completed a trail connection between Minto Brown Park and Riverfront Park when combined with the former Union Pacific Bridge connection into Wallace Park on the west side of the river connected more than 20 miles of off-street trails between Downtown Salem, South Salem and West Salem.

The unique inclined arch cable stayed design has created a signature structure that has become a jewel for the Salem parks system.
