Mill Creek Park: Lake Newport and Suspension Bridge

Bob and I spent this past Saturday (August 9th) at Mill Creek Park, a metropolitan park located in Youngstown, Ohio.  Our first stop was at Fellows Riverside Gardens.  When our visit to Fellows Riverside Gardens ended, we rode around the west side of Lake Glacier to Lily Pond.  In today’s blog post I will share photographs that I took at Lake Newport and of a Suspension Bridge.

The Suspension Bridge, located on Valley Drive, was erected in 1895.  The bridge was designed by Charles Fowler of the Youngstown Bridge Company.  The Suspension Bridge spans Mill Creek and measures 86 feet long and 32 feet wide. It has been called the Silver Bridge, the Cinderella Bridge, the Castle Bridge, and the Walt Disney Bridge.

The Suspension Bridge was crossed frequently, while we were there.

Soon after our arrival at the bridge, a wedding party arrived.  I had hoped to capture a candid photograph of the bride and groom on the bridge; however, I didn’t get the opportunity.  Bob and I sat at our vantage point, watching the wedding photographer set up and take photographs.  It became apparent that people who wanted to cross the bridge were looking to Bob and me for direction as to whether or not to cross the bridge.  We didn’t want to direct traffic, so we left!

Our final stop at Mill Creek Park was at Lanterman’s Mill, the subject of my next blog post.

    Great post Linda, and super photos. The bridge was very interesting and I enjoyed all your photos, but I fell in love with that shiny green classic car.
