Editorial: Red Bridge will be missed by community

Email News Alerts

Monday was a memorable day in Park Rapids history.

The beloved Red Bridge, a symbol of community togetherness and generations of good memories, came down.


It was unceremoniously lifted by a crane and placed on the ground nearby.

Unfortunately, it was done surreptitiously. The media and public were not notified. City officials hadn’t even received word from the DNR that the bridge was being taken down Monday morning.
