Background notes:
A multiuse park opened in 1998 as a wetland mitigation area in compensation for construction of the Meerymeeting Bridge and associated wetland impacts. This park features a 3/10 mile walking loop around a tidal wetland. Interpretive signage describes some of the park history —

The site was the location of the Bay Bridge between which connected Brunswick and Topsham in the 19th and early 20th centuries — as well as providing information about some of the common wetland flora and fauna. Ospreys often nest on a platform nest next to the site. This park also offers a boat launch area for use by small boats and canoes. This site is heavily used in the winter months for an access point for
ice fishing
