The Bandstand on Garner Island

   If you look west up the river from the bridge in Kezar Fall Village you can’t miss seeing the little island with the charming cottage that is located close to the bridge. It is reached from Elm Street by a driveway to a small access bridge.

    In the 1880’s the island, owned by Allen Garner, was used as a park. For a few years there was a small bandstand on the island that was reached by a footbridge from the middle of the old Kezar Falls covered bridge.
