Amsterdam Bridge

Amsterdam Bridge is on the Toronto waterfront in Canada. The steel structure is a cable footbridge that crosses over the Simcoe Street Slip.

Name

The Amsterdam Bridge commemorates the twinning of the two cities. Similarly, a bridge that crosses the Amstel river in Amsterdam was renamed Toronto Bridge.

A bilingual plaque on the bridge reads as follows:

This Dutch style lift bridge was opened by His Worship Wim Polak, The Mayor of Amsterdam during his official tour of Toronto Harbour on June 25th 1978. It is named the Amsterdam Bridge in Honour of Toronto's Twin City.
