Starting in 1976, these two small bridges crossed Farmington Creek further downstream, inside Lagoon Amusement Park. They were part of the Pioneer Village Railroad, a 36" gauge miniature train ride that closed in 1988. The first bridge was just east of the station, now a model train museum. The second bridge crossed the creek north of the Log Flume ride.
In the 1990s, the bridges were relocated to their current location, as part of a public walking trail which Lagoon owns, but maintained by the city as part of an agreement made between the two entities. The trail is open to the public year-round.
There's a possibility that the bridges were used elsewhere before being purchased by Lagoon, but they could've also been installed new in 1976.
