Dunn's Bridge County Park

You’ll find the only public boat access to the Kankakee River in Porter County at this park. An excellent spot to canoe or kayak, the river is spanned by a bridge you can cross on foot. Local lore suggests that the arches of this bridge came from the first Ferris wheel at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Whatever the bridge’s origin, it is now placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
