We are excited to announce the reopening of Mary’s Bridge. Dedicated to Mary Freeman, the bridge has provided easy access across Hunters Creek to the Riverhouse, as well as having provided the perfect location for family photos since Acadia’s founding. However, a few sections of railing were in need of repair, so we had to close off the bridge for safety’s sake. We took this opportunity to update the design of Mary’s Bridge to make it even more appealing. Thanks to the hard work of Craig Brookhart, the intricate, natural feel of the original has been recreated- and improved upon- in handsomely varnished cedar. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for a hidden surprise in the center of the bridge, inspired by the local heron who make their home by the banks of Hunters Creek.
