Significance: The Lake Park Brick Arch Bridge is located in one of Milwaukee's early public parks designed by the notable Boston landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmstead. The span is Wisconsin's only remaining example of a high style masonry bridge. Because of the rarity of masonry construction in bridge design and its association with the Olmstead office, it remains one of the nation's most prominent ornamental park bridges.
