Description & Services

Information The Hopewell Footbridge is one of the last surviving footbridges in North America. It was originally built in the 1800's along with another footbridge, which was destroyed by ice and extreme winter conditions. In 1991 large effort was made to restore the bridge. The bridge itself stems off into a series of trails and walking paths overlooking the river. The attached park is home to the annual Footbridge Ceilidh, which takes place the second Sunday in August.
