Sweeping river views to be seen at Three Bridges Park

The attractions are fairly simple at Three Bridges Park east of Marshalltown – the Iowa River and the natural landscape.

Mike Stegmann, director of the Marshall County Conservation Board which operates the park, said fishing and spotting the bedrock are two of the main draws to the area.

“You can get a good view of the river and people sit on the bridge and can fish off of it,” Stegmann said.

A trail makes its way along the bluff with a suspension bridge among the highlights of the walkway.

The park was the first acquisition of the MCCB in 1960. It is located nearly 3 miles northwest of Le Grand near the corner of Quarry and Three Bridges roads.

Those looking into history can view the Quarry Bridge which is near the park. Built in 1885, the bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.
