Arrowhead Park will ring in the summer season with a new pedestrian bridge that was installed earlier today.
The new bridge, which is set to be open to visitors by June, connects the eastern and western sides of the lake near Lion's Lakeside Loop trail for the first time in around 10 years after the county removed an older bridge.
Park visitors have expressed their interest in a bridge that connects this particular area of the lake to the trail systems and camping areas on the northwestern side of the park, and Pottawattamie Conservation is happy to be able to fulfill this request from the community.
Special thanks for this project is due to the Pottawattamie County Board of Supervisors, the Pottawattamie County Secondary Roads Department, and Barnhart Crane and Rigging.
You can watch a video of the bridge being installed below:
