Walk Across Tiny Bridges

If you go to the Parking Garage Lighthouse you will be able to see the tiny bridges and the U-Haul on top of a bldg. A three-for-one.

The bridges are well worth the stop. Tip: This is actually on the lawn of Florida State College campus. There is free parking in the service lot right behind the lawn area. Be sure to see the nearby Cancer Survivor series of statues.

Very cool. They have a painted river below the bridges.

[Chris Lautz, 02/04/2019]

The bridges are scaled-down replicas of Jacksonville's five downtown bridges across the St. Johns River, which is genuinely wet.

This park is much more than just five bridges. It's a Cancer Survivors Park with a sculpture by Victor Salmones. We were told several times that in real life Jacksonville has seven bridges. No idea if there are plans to add replicas of the Hart or Buckman bridges to the park.

Cancer Survivors Park is a franchise visible in other cities as well. The tiny bridges are unique to Jacksonville.

Miniature Replica Bridges

Jacksonville is known as "The River City" because the St. Johns River runs through it. Five bridges in Jacksonville cross the river, and a downtown park has small versions of all five that you can walk on across a miniature St. Johns River. The miniature bridges are even painted the same colors as the real bridges.

The bridges are the Mathews Bridge, the Dames Point Bridge, the Fuller Warren Bridge, the Acosta Bridge, and the Main Street (John T. Alsop) Bridge.
