For the first time ever, I’ve begun to explore Forest Park further away from the major attractions, and the portion of the park nearest the Central West End is a quiet and little known patch of tranquility. It seems to be the best preserved from the time when the park was out in the country, and the so-called Victorian Foot Bridge is a great example of that.
Replete with Italianate ornamentation, as well as some fleur-de-lis, it is apparently a pony truss style bridge.
I like how the bridge fits into the natural scenery so well.
These steps lead over Forest Park Parkway to the intersection of Lindell and Kingshighway.
