From Texas Public Radio:
On Boerne’s east side, beyond the city pool, tennis courts and soccer fields, lies 160 acres of parkland. If visitors park in the lot, pass the pavilion, and walk about 75 yards west, they come upon a wooden bridge.
It’s the International Bridge at the Cibolo Nature Center.
Brent Evans has a relationship with the bridge that dates back to 1990. He and his wife founded the Center 34 years ago.
He doesn’t think the bridge looks different from any of the other bridges at the Nature Center. “It’s basically a footbridge made of pine and two by eights and four by fours,” he said. “And it stretches across a distance of about 30 feet, and about eight feet wide.”
But it’s what the bridge signifies that gives it its unique standing at the park.
“This is 1990,” Evans explains. “And there were some Russian and Ukrainian businessmen who came to the Guadalupe River Ranch for a couple of weeks of learning how to be entrepreneurs, because these are the days of perestroika.”
