I visited this bridge recently and was surprised to see that it did not appear to be a recently relocated bridge as is the case in many parks. I am wondering if this bridge is in its original location. The bridge is behind the Cobbs Creek Community Environmental Center, and the staff there had no knowledge of its history or significance. Cobbs Creek Park was established in 1911 and the bridge is at least 15-20 years older than that. There were mills along the creek in the 19th Century and this bridge could have been a main thoroughfare.
Thanks Geoff, its fixed now!
The later post is the correct location, I'll try to delete the first one.
Wow, it appears this extremely rare lenticular pony truss has slipped under the radar all these years!
