Located northeast of Jacksonville, this mile-long, pedestrian-only fishing bridge spans Nassau Sound providing access to one of the best fishing areas in Florida.The bridge, built in 1948, was renamed by the 2003 Florida Legislature in honor of State Representative George Crady who spearheaded local support to save the bridge for public fishing use. Closed to vehicular traffic in 1999 when a new bridge spanning the Nassau Sound was built, the Florida Park Service took over its management and preserves it today as a favorite local fishing spot and public park.
Anglers catch a variety of fish, including whiting, jacks, drum and tarpon. The World's Record Southern Flounder was caught on the bridge in 1983 weing in at 20 lb., 9.4 oz. Pedestrians and bicyclists also enjoy the panoramic views of area as they cross the Sound.
