Located on Symons Campus, Faryon Bridge, 182 feet long, crosses the Otonabee River, joining the east and west banks and fulfilling the promise expressed in the Master Plan that the Otonabee River would flow through the centre of the Trent University campus. Ron Thom won a design of merit citation in 1971 for this bridge.
Faryon Bridge is named after the late Reginald R. Faryon, who was a member of the Trent's original Board and president of the Quaker Oats Company of Canada. He was a strong proponent of the site that is now Trent's Symons Campus. Photo credit: Parks' Peterborough
