Susie Aber & Cheryl Unruh take a slow walk over the Halstead suspension bridge. The movie ‘Picnic’ was filmed, partially, in this park (1955). I believe my family watched part of the filming, but I was very young and can’t remember much of it. What does stay in my mind is the bright lights over the set, and a feeling of excitement.
