Hi everybody:

I always have a doubt about this word across. Could you help me to translate it into Spanish?

I ran over the bridge and across the park. Across means cruzar algo como cruzar la calle, pero se que también significa atravesar un lugar como atravesar un tunel.

Thanks

    Across is not a verb, and therefore does not mean cruzar or atravesar. It is a preposition. There are various ways to translate your sentence, but one might be "Crucé el puente corriendo y continué hasta el otro lado del parque."
