Stewart Park Pedestrian Bridges

Ithaca, New York 14850, United States

Created By: Ithaca Heritage


There are two suspension bridges over Fall Creek in Stewart Park that are part of the extensive walkways of the Cayuga Waterfront Trail, Ithaca’s 8-mile multi-use waterfront “destination.” Originally conceived in 2001, the Waterfront Trail opened its first section in 2003 at Cass Park, and Phase 2 in 2010, connecting the Farmers Market to Stewart Park and the Tompkins County Convention and Visitors Bureau. The section connecting Cass Park to the Farmers Market opened in 2015, while Phase 4 opened at Alan Treman State Marine Park in 2019. The Waterfront Trail is ADA compliant and passes numerous popular destinations, including the Ithaca Children’s Garden, and connects to the Black Diamond Trail, a celebrated trail connecting Ithaca to Taughannock Falls State Park.
