Old Washington Street Bridge

Pedestrian bridge in White River State Park

Built in 1916 to replace a bridge destroyed in the Great Flood of 1913, this bridge served as a crossing for Washington Street (the historic National Road) until 1994, when it was refurbished as an art-filled pedestrian bridge connecting the Indianapolis Zoo and White River Gardens section of White River State Park to the park’s main campus.
