VIEWING BRIDGE CLOSURE AT GIANT SPRINGS STATE PARK
By angelamontana

Posted: April 6, 2022

GREAT FALLS – Rehabilitation on portions of the rock wall near the Giant Springs will begin on April 11, 2022 and is scheduled to continue through most of the upcoming summer. The construction will focus on repairing damaged portions of the retaining wall surrounding the spring that were not included in the construction work at the site last fall.

During this time the viewing bridge around the Giant Springs may be closed and visitors will be detoured off the sidewalk onto the grass around the worksite.  Visitors are asked to be mindful of any detour signage and utilize the upper River’s Edge trail (near the railroad tracks) during this time on their normal bike rides, runs, or walks if possible.  Maintaining the historical structures in the park will ensure that these important features will be around for future generations to enjoy.

Updates will be posted to the Giant Springs State Park social media page https://www.facebook.com/GiantSpringsStatePark/
