I may not like that, but I can't argue against it. So they want a really well overbuilt bridge.
Everybody brings one rock every round they play. Rocks go into the creek; couple of years you have a ford.

He have a really steep bank to deal with. That wouldn't make a ford, it would make a dam. So it's got to be more of a bridge. We tried to just put in a culvert with a load of caliche and gravel, but they won't go for that for "environmental" reasons.

Depending on the waterway an improperly sized culvert can cause more harm than good during large rain events. While aggravating for you it is for good reason.

One suggestion is, see if there is a college nearby with a civil engineering program. This sort of thing would be good for students to work on since that sort of thing looks really good on a resume. That way the engineering is free and now you're left with construction costs.

Another suggestion is to look into park improvement grants. They do exist and are a royal PITA sometimes to get might be worth it. Get the right grant and you might be able to do A LOT more than install a foot bridge.

We just climb through the bank. The water is not really the issue, it’s just very hard that cross the bank. It used to not be so bad, but a lot of the bank has eroded. There’s a crossing near the first holes and one near the end, but we really need another in the middle.
