This stone foot bridge is located in Colt State Park, Bristol, Rhode Island. Its beautiful stone work predate to an earlier era when craftsmen were proud of their work. The park was part of a former gentleman’s farm owned by Samuel B. Colt around 1921.
Senator John Chaffee was instrumental in having the state of Rhode Island purchase the property in 1965. It is the gem of the state park system offering open panoramic views of Narragansett Bay.
Its estuary, bike and footpaths, old stone farmhouse and magnificent bronze bulls which guard the park entrance make it unique. With 464 acres of fruit trees, flowering bushes and manicured lawns, it is much beloved and used by Rhode Islanders.
