Residents visited the restored Wardown Park Suspension Bridge which has been a central feature of the park since the early 1900s and was completed by 1908.
It is reported to be the shortest single span suspension bridge in the country. The four-month project fully restored the bridge to its original glory with much of the structural steel work mended and the suspension cables replaced. The bridge plays an important role linking the communities from either side of the park.
It also provides an attractive and accessible route through the park for many Lutonian’s on their way to the town centre, work and school," he said. The park is well kept and has a lake which is surrounded by the park itself. There used to be boats for hire so you could paddle around it but for some years now this hasn't been possible.
Whilst the bridge is a focal part of the park, bird and ducks abound and the trees are very picturesque.
Residents reminisced about years gone by, when they strolled through the park, stopping off to watch people paddling in their boats and feeding the wildlife.
It was a special day out for Marg as it was her birthday as well!
