Attraction Overview

Originally built in 1833 as a part of the National Road (Historic U.S. 40), this bridge is now a pedestrian crosswalk linking the Park’s western attractions like the Indianapolis Zoo & White River Gardens and White River Promenade to the eastern attractions on the other side of the White River. Also the bridge is home to our biennial Art Sculptures in the Parkexperience (started in 1999) to showcase Indiana (and regional) artists. This rolling two-year program makes art accessible and free to all Park visitors.  The sculptures are for sale by the artists
