Green area around the bridge over Nabão River at Mouchão Park in Tomar

There was a time that to cross Nabão River from one side of Mouchão Park in Tomar to the other during winter, you had to use either the small dam near the swimming pool Vasco Jacob or go around through Rua Marquês de Tomar. This was so because they would build a wooden bridge here for the entire summer but during winter, they would dismantle it to avoid being washed away by possible floods. So one day, the Town Council of Tomar got tired of building and taking down a bridge every year, and decided to build a permanent one, which you can see on the pictures below. This is a beautiful green zone at Mouchão Park and this quiet small bridge stands out in the area.

The temporary bridges built here in summer, were much closer to the water of Nabão River and thus subjected to floods if they were left there during winter
