“The bridge provides a restful walk for pedestrians, linking a park with a neighbourhood within the city.”
The Gibbon's Park Bridge spans 100 meters over the Thames River in London, Ontario.
It is the first permanent structure at this site, replacing a series of seasonal bridges that provided crossing for over a century. The design consists of a smooth, shallow arch anchored at either end by walls that appear to thrust from the ground. The bridge provides a restful walk for pedestrians, linking a park with a neighbourhood within the city, while remaining sensitive to the ecological concerns of the river itself without disturbing the site's rural heritage.
Completion Date: 1999
