The bridge, which hangs over Wurzbach Parkway, was put into place to connect the once divided Phil Hardberger Park and offer animals and people a safe way to cross the busy road.

The bridge will also be an amazing community hangout spot, as it connects a park that features multiple amenities such as a playground, dog park and basketball courts.

The Tobin bridge will also be connecting over 7 miles of nature trails, which will undoubtedly lead to a hike that is truly unlike any other in the state.

Of course, the opening day comes with multiple restrictions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, including limited bathroom usage and social-distancing.
