Work is complete on the new 570-foot bridge at Millennium Park in Grand Rapids!

Be one of the first to see what it's like to take a ride across the new bridge.

The bridge rises as high as 24 feet in some parts. Last Saturday morning, I had a chance to ride across the bridge. Other areas of Millennium Park were very busy, but the bridge was wide open, as you can see.

The bridge is part of a $3 million expansion which also includes a covered pavilion (photos below) with room for 300 for picnics.

Millennium Park covers 1,400 acres with 18 miles of trails, a six-acre beach, a splashpad, boat rentals and more.
