We live right on the edge of Millcreek Park in Youngstown, Ohio. On June 14, 2018 we created a video showing our subscribers around the park and talking about some of the places within the park. We have created other videos as well about some of the buildings that are part of the page.
One of the structures in the middle of the park is the the Suspension Bridge. It is located on Valley Drive, was erected in 1895, and spans Mill Creek connecting the east and west sides of the park. Following the wishes of Volney Rogers to create fanciful park entrances, Charles Fowler of the Youngstown Bridge Company designed the structure. The Suspension Bridge is the oldest bridge in Mill Creek Park and measures 86 feet long and 32 feet wide. It has been called the Silver Bridge, the Cinderella Bridge, the Castle Bridge, and the Walt Disney Bridge. By whatever name it is known, the Suspension Bridge with its lacy arches and soaring spires has provided romantic imagery for countless artists and photographers over the years.
There are reports of the apparition of a woman dressed in white that will occasionally appear around the silver bridge. We have not had the chance yet to investigate the bridge, but plan on doing that sometime in the future.
As mentioned in the beginning of this post, we live within the boundaries of the park, so we have been through the park on several occasions and have a lot of photos. Some of which may be associated within a specific location within the park. Here is a list of posts of locations that are within the park as well:
