Dallas' Bridge Park


   First there was the wildly successful Klyde Warren Deck Park between Uptown and Downtown. Now comes Dallas' newest attraction, the Bridge Park.

   Opened with relatively minor fanfare, the bridge park was built on the old Continental Avenue Bridge which was replaced by the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge.  Today it connects pedestrians to the two areas which are predicted to have immense changes in the next 20 years, Riverside Boulevard (formerly Industrial Boulevard) and West Dallas.

    Below are a few photos of Dallas most unusual park.

Looking east, toward downtown


A climbing . . . blob


Chess Tables, Umbrellas and Vines that will eventually add shade


Misters and loungers give a place to cool off and get sun.


Underneath the bridges, running trails



One of many chairs, benches and tables on the bridge park

Great views of the parallel Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge


A short distance away is the new Sylvan Avenue Bridge which has an offramp that will connect you to the new running trails and other park features in the Trinity River Project.
