The crossing at Riverside – directly between Boissevain and Brandon, was always the most well used route. A wooden bridge built in the early 1900’s, was just a short distance downstream from today’s crossing.
A new concrete arch bridge was completed in 1929. That crossing became a popular recreation spot with a dance hall, ball diamond, a store and gas station. Highway #10 crossed the bridge and proceeded straight up the hill running parallel to the current Highway, which runs a mile to the west. This is now the “0ld Riverside Bridge”. The current bridge was built in the early 1970’s, leaving the old bridge and the access to it in place. Liskum Campbell Park was created on the site. Next time you’re passing by, stop and take a walk around – it is a beautiful spot.
