Waterside St. near jct. with Jacksonville Blvd., North Little Rock, Arkansas

Stone bridge over a tributary of Lake No. 1 on Waterside Drive in North Little Rock



Waterside Street Bridge is one of four stone-faced bridges in North Little Rock's historic Lakewood subdivision, developed in the 1930s by local real estate tycoon Justin Matthews. An addition to the more formal 1920s subdivision of Park Hill, Lakewood was laid out around a series of recreational parks and man-made lakes that provided an engaging natural backdrop for landscape features like bridges. Waterside Street Bridge is historically significant for its association with the development of one of Arkansas' early suburbs and of architectural interest for its rustic design. -- Historic American Engineering Record (HAER AR-72)
