The Sparkill Creek Drawbridge is a historic Pratt Pony Truss drawbridge located at Piermont in Rockland County, New York. It was built in 1880 by the King Iron Bridge Company of Cleveland, Ohio, and is a single-leaf movable metal bridge. It spans Sparkill Creek, a tributary of the Hudson River.[2]

The bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985[1] and documented by the Historic American Engineering Record in 1994.

A complete dismantling and restoration for $900,000 was completed in 2009 and the bridge now serves as solely a pedestrian bridge. The Rockland County Highway Department was responsible for this historic restoration.
