The Great Lakes Park Training Institute recently recognized Hamilton County Parks and Recreation with the Outstanding Facility Award for the placement of a pedestrian-only bridge over the White River in Hamilton County. Hamilton County Parks and Recreation Dept. also was recently presented with the Indiana Park and Recreation Association’s Excellence in Landscape Design award for the same project.
The project utilized two metal truss bridges from Washington and Wayne Township which were previously slated for demolition. The bridges were saved and restored and then used as part of the project. The new bridge connects the White River Campground to Strawtown Koteewi Park.
“This unique bridge project not only enhances accessibility and safety for its users, it also preserves key pieces of Indiana transportation history,” Director of Hamilton County Parks Al Patterson stated in a press release.
