Long Description:
The Clear Creek Bridge once took traffic across Clear Creek on Nicholson Road in Denton County, but it has since been replaced by a concrete bridge and relocated here, used as a foot bridge to take visitors to the soccer fields on the west side of the park. The bridge was built by Austin Brothers in 1907, although Bridgehunter gives a year of 1925.

There is plenty of parking here within sight of the bridge, and on less busy days, one can practically pull right up to it for visits.

Date Built: 1/1/1907

Length of Span:
Bridgehunter notes the length of the largest span at 79.1', its total length at 155.8', and its deck width at 11.5'. Denton County notes the length as 137'2", the width as 12'2", and a rail length of 8'.
