This is one of three bridges in the aptly named Three Bridges Park.
Three Bridges Park was announced as the name selected for the new park in the Menomonee Valley just east of Miller Park, beneath the 35th and 27th Street Viaducts. The name selection was the result of a community-wide call for name suggestions.
The 24-acre park, which is located along a southern bank of the Menomonee River, is being created as part of Menomonee Valley – From the Ground Up - a series of interconnected projects to improve access to jobs, environmental education, outdoor recreation and neighborhood vitality. Partners in this effort include Wisconsin Departments of Natural Resources and Transportation, City of Milwaukee, Menomonee Valley Partners, and the Urban Ecology Center. Other From the Ground Up projects have included a six-mile extension of the Hank Aaron State Trail, the Valley Passage and the development of the third branch of the Urban Ecology Center at 37th and Pierce Street. The opening of Three Bridges Park will be the last major milestone in the From the Ground Up effort.
The park is being built on a former rail yard that was vacant for decades. The park will feature one mile of accessible hiking trails, river access for fishing and canoeing, community gardens and new bike/pedestrian bridges providing access to the Mitchell Park Domes and the Clarke Square neighborhood. The park will be cooperatively owned by the State and City and will become a part of the Hank Aaron State Trail. Urban Ecology Center will program Three Bridges Park as the outdoor science classroom of their new Menomonee Valley branch located south of the Valley Passage - one of the three newly-constructed bike and pedestrian bridges.
