Jericho Bridge

The Jericho Bridge links the outer loop of the park trails as it crosses the marsh area surrounding Little Creek just off Jericho Road. It also allows access to the trails for walkers from the downtown area by way of Jericho Road.

Ravine Bridge

The Ravine Bridge links the outer loop of the park trails as it crossed a natural ravine that is a watershed for the surrounding park area.Picture It is raised approximately fifteen feet above the ravine forest floor. Just over the bridge railing, on the south side, are the remnants of an earthen dam that was used in the early eighteen hundreds to trap fresh water in the winter time. After the water froze, ice blocks were cut and stored in the hill side and use for cooling on the farm in the summer. Around dusk, if you are lucky and very still, you might see deer passing beneath the bridge.

Station Bridge

PictureThe Station Bridge provides a link to the outer loop trails from South Church Street and the Smithfield Station Parking lot. An overlook is situated approximately midway adjacent to Little Creek.Picture Two benches provide a place for resting and viewing wildlife and the many surrounding picturesque sites.

Mason Street Bridge

The Mason Street Bridge provides a link to the outer loop trails from downtown by way of Mason Street. Walkers entering the park via this route pass through a beautifully landscaped “mini park” adorned with brick entrance columns and a brick paver walk that leads to the bridge. These surroundings provide a perfect setting for rest, meditation and watching wildlife. An overlook with benches is located midway that allows walkers the opportunity to stop, rest and enjoy the panoramic view of Little Creek.

Overlook Bridge

The Overlook Bridge connects the trails to a deck strategically located at a bend in Cypress Creek that allows panoramic viewing of the surrounding marsh. Benches are provided for resting, meditating, reading and wildlife spotting. Bald Eagles, osprey, deer, muskrat, and otter have been observed from the deck.
