South Perkasie Covered Bridge is a historic wooden covered bridge located at Perkasie, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1832, and is a 93-foot-long (28 m) Town truss covered bridge. The bridge once crossed Pleasant Spring Creek, but was moved and rededicated on August 15, 1959, by Congressman Willard S. Curtin as a feature in Lenape Park. It is the oldest covered bridge in Bucks County.[2][3]

The bridge was added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 1, 1980.[1]
