“Back to my roots”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I have a photo of myself as a toddler standing on the bridge and I was really excited to see it still standing 53 years later! Needless to say I now have a new photo!
Thank you to those wise people who decided that the Suspension bridge needed to stay!

“Free and good honest fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Return to your childhood and wait till your partner gets to the middle and then make it "swing". Watch the ducks swimming on the river with their babies in spring. Guide the little ones across and reward them with extended play on the play equiptment.

For the brave, ride your pushbike across.

(PS do not attempt to navigate this one if you have had a "few". Use the road bridge instead!)

Walk across, enjoy the experience... your kids will love this bridge which is right next to the children's play equipment and a lovely rivers edge walk path.

“Swinging bridge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

This bridge is definitely worth a look. Not recommended for those who do not like heights or feel dizzy as it swings a lot when you walk on it.

“A swinging good time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Gotta love a cross over the Avon River on this Swinging suspension Bridge. Not the original bridge but a very good reproduction of it.
