It is a narrow stone bridge over the Mississippi river. It is just beside our favorite 'Poutine' hut on one side and the rushing river on the other.

This is a photogenic bridge, and it's worth seeing and finding a good angle on a sunny day. Not a destination in itself, but an attraction.

A must-see 5-span stone bridge that crosses the Mississippi River. Interesting architecture and engineering design. The immediate area is suitable for picnic lunch.

This 100+ year-old stone bridge is the subject of many paintings. Beneath its arches is a rich fossil bed from 450 million years past. That plus waterfalls and rapids, makes this site a splendid summer visit site.

Beautiful bridge, man made over 100yrs old. Photographers attraction. Walk on the rocks, fish or just lounge in the summer.

A nice place to take pictures and relax by a beautiful river. The bridge is just at the entrance to Packenham. Excellent for an outdoor picnic.
