Hawaii's Bridges: Lili'uokalani Garden Bridges (2)

April 2001 (19.726 Degrees, -155.069 Degrees) Lili'uokalani Garden Bridges
Queen Lili'uokalani's Park reminds me of the Historical Bridge Park in Calhoun County Michigan. They are both full of bridges whose purpose now is to carry people around parks. Today's bridge is a little closed spandrel arch. It's resemblance to a Japanese bridge may reflect the close relationship that Japan has to Hawaii. In fact, there was a large Japanese community living in the area that was destroyed by the tsunami of 1946 and 1960.
