{Throwback Thursday} Built in 1907 by the Midland Bridge Company, this bridge was originally meant to span a nearly inaccessible area of dense underbrush to connect Swope Park's Grand Entrance with a proposed athletic field. It was affectionately known as the “Swinging Bridge” because of its tendency to sway from side to side with foot traffic. The bridge was renovated in the 1990s. It is 227 feet long and is suspended approximately 94 feet above the Blue River. It is now part of the Zoo’s African Exhibit. #KCParks #TBT #throwbackthursday
