The Kidd’s Mill Bridge Park is situated upon approximately 9 acres of land in Transfer, Pennsylvania.  The Park is located on Kidd’s Mill Bridge Road, which can be found by exiting PA Route 18 at Reynolds Industrial Park Road.  You will see the bridge when you cross the Shenango River.  The Park presently includes the Kidd’s Mill Bridge, the Bigler House, a well maintained parking area and scenic picnic area overlooking the Shenango River, a comfort station, a canoe launch, and the northern terminus of the 8 mile Shenango Hiking Trail.

The Shenango Conservancy is a Pennsylvania non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation.  Annual Membership in the Shenango Conservancy is $5/Student; $15/Individual; $25/Family; $50/Business; or $250 Lifetime Membership.  Annual Membership can be obtained by mailing your name, address, and appropriate check  to 747 Greenville Road, Mercer, PA 16137-5023.
