This Fishermen's Park Access Bridge over the Sauk Creek is the only remaining King Post Bridge in Wisconsin. It is unique for its all-metal King Post Construction, certified as significant in 1987 by the National Park Service using criteria for the National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1925, the bridge originally stood in front of the Port Brewery and spanned Valley Creek in Lower Lake Park. In the early 1930's the bridge was moved to this location at the request of the Wisconsin Electric Power Company, which was building its Port Washington Plant. In 1997 this bridge was selected by the Wisconsin Trust for Historic Preservation as one of the ten most endangered historic properties in the state. The City of Port Washington restored this historic bridge in 2009.

This plaque donated Shirley Schanen Gruen.
