At one time, Jackson Park was the city's athletic center. There were many canoe races on the lake and some of the teams even entered the Henley Regatta in England. When moving pictures were introduced, an outdoor screen was built in the park and hundreds came out to watch the shows. The Pagoda Bridge is an architectural gem! It is a fine example of Victorian Garden Architecture, which was popular in the nineteenth century. The dam and bridges, including the Pagoda Bridge, are believed to have been built in 1894 using plans provided by John E. Belcher.
