Park of Transplanted Bridges

Nice place to stop to stretch your legs, well laid out with paths between the bridges. It's a little far from the expressway, but worth it if you have some time.

Metal framework of a bridge.

Pleasant walk to stretch your legs. The park is nicely laid out to get from one bridge to the next.

A beautiful park with several bridges you can walk across. There's a kid's playground and restrooms. Careful, there's poison ivy along the paths.

Park of Transplanted Bridges

This is a fun historical county park only 4-5 minutes from I-94! It is along the Kalamazoo River and features six historic bridges (five metal, one stone/railroad) that have been added as features to the walking/nature path (They are for pedestrians now, not cars). In August I stopped, enjoyed a picnic by the river, and walked over five of the bridges (and under the sixth). [Kyla, 12/31/2016]
