Description of De Haar, concrete bridge with fence over BochtdijkDescription part 28: RUSTIC BRIDGE IN CONCRETE WITH FENCE OVER THE BOCHTDIJK. Large rustic BRUG over the Bochtdijk from around 1906 as a connection between the Noorder- and Zuiderpark, with concrete, cemented straight handrails with short straight uprights, between which are filled with imitation rustic branches. Straight plank, supported by straight and sloping imitation beams. Imitation wood grain and bark are drawn in concrete uprights, beams, railings and stuffing. Bridge has great ornamental value for the entire park layout and for the view from the Bochtdijk. The bridge was restored in 1997. On the north side of this bridge an ornamental wrought iron gate, probably dating from the same time. The ornamental cast-iron pillars on either side are crowned by a sphere. The fence is painted white and red. Appreciation The RUSTIC BRIDGE IN CONCRETE WITH FENCE OVER THE BOCHTDIJK is of cultural interest in the general interest because of: - the ornamental value; - the ensemble value; - the rarity value.
