The Happy Hollow District Bridge or Civitan Bridge is a pedestrian, truss bridge spanning the Cahaba River within Trussville Civitan Park. The bridge was constructed in 1909 and features a steel frame with wooden planks. Located approximately 100 yards north of the Gadsden Highway, this has been listed on the Alabama Register of Landmarks & Heritage since March 19, 1986.

The bridge was damaged in 2013 during a flood of the Cahaba River. The portion of Civitan Park containing the bridge was fenced off until the repairs were completed and the park's greenway was opened in 2017.
