Summary

Significance: The Lake Park Brick Arch Bridge is located in one of Milwaukee's early public parks designed by the notable Boston landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted. The span is Wisconsin's only remaining example of a high style masonry bridge. Because of the rarity of masonry construction in bridge design and its association with the Olmsted office, it remains one of the nation's most prominent ornamental park bridges.
