Bob Woodruff Park, Plano – North Pavilion

Mathemagical bridge

The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge takes my breath away. Think I’m being hyperbolic about this parabolic wonder? Let’s pack a picnic and check it out. There’s plenty of parking a short walk from the bridge.

Green canopies in the making dot the walking bridge nearby.

Let’s plonk on chairs, unwrap sandwiches, dive into potato chips.

Explore trails under the bridge and see the other bridges nearby.

Solid and orderly, this rail bridge holds its own next to the new kid on the block.

Enjoy the changing patterns that the graceful arch and cabled stays provide.
