The bridge was constructed in 1930, replacing an earlier wooden structure. It was built by the Saskatoon Contracting Co., owned by Leon and Paul Precesky. In 1933, a series of ponds were dug in the ravine as a Depression-era relief project, meant to beautify "Central Park", as the area was known as then. The pond system was extended in the 1950s, but has since been filled in. The remaining ravine still serves as an outlet for storm water.
