Take A Journey Through This One-Of-A-Kind Bridge Park In Iowa
With 13 acres of timber and limestone bluffs surrounding a beautiful river, this park of bridges in the Iowa River Greenbelt area of our amazing state is worth a visit this fall.
Three Bridges County Park, located 6.5 miles east of Marshalltown or 2.75 miles northwest of LeGrand, is an amazing place to spend a sunny fall afternoon.
The Iowa River runs through the park creating an ideal habitat for native Iowa wildlife.
There are three beautiful bridges at this park (hence the name) and each one is different.
This suspension bridge offers a unique thrill.
It's part of a lovely hiking trail and is suspending on lengths of chain.
The Quarry Bridge was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in May of 1998.
It's the oldest originally-placed wagon bridge in the county, built in 1855.
People who enjoy kayaking and canoeing consider this one of the nicest places in the area to get out and enjoy nature.
The park has remnants of the area's first rock quarry and the foundation of an early grist mill on the north side of the park remains.
There's a lot of natural Iowa beauty, here.
Three Bridges Park is managed by the Marshall County Conservation Board. Its official hours are 5:30 am until 10:30 pm every day. The park is open year 'round.
