Alexandra Bridge Provincial Park

About This Park

Alexandra Bridge Provincial ParkAlexandra Bridge Provincial Park is a small park centred around the site of the original Cariboo Wagon Road bridge over the Fraser River. The park was established in 1984. It provides both a rest stop and picnic facilities for travelers. This site has been a natural stop-over and crossing of the Fraser River since the area was first populated. Because of its small size there are limited recreational opportunities within this park. You can access the historic bridge from a trail through the day-use area.

Park Size: 55 hectares

Special Notes: The bridge itself is not in the park; it is maintained by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. Visitors should exercise caution when visiting the bridge, as there are steep rock drop offs on the banks of the river.
