Living in Newport Beach: CdM Goldenrod Bridge

Goldenrod Footbridge in Corona del Mar

Goldenrod bridge, Corona del Mar, CA

The Goldenrod Footbridge is a recognizable feature in the Corona del Mar community, with it’s cascade of pink and orange flowers. It’s a lovely little shortcut between the downtown area of Corona del Mar and the beach–I enjoy late-day strolls along this bridge.

At one time, it was known as the bridge to span the 243-foot “Pacific Gulch”. Built in 1928, the bridge cost $10,884. It was built to “provide convenient access to the beach for residents and visitors to the community.” It’s hard to believe that at the time, there were only about 2,000 such residents in Newport Beach. (Information and quote from the plaque on the Goldenrod Footbridge.)
