  • Looking at a picture of this bridge spanning about 150 feet of water, and looking at present-day maps and images of Ogden Park, I was having difficulty reconciling the two as present-day Ogden Park has no waterways. The Chicago Park District web site explains, "Additionally, each [of several city parks] had a beautiful landscape with a meandering waterway near a meadow of ballfields. Ogden Park's waterway was drained and filled in 1940."
