It is a great walk from the Legislature grounds across the bridge to the University Area. Time it right so the lights are on for the return trip across.

Nice viewing the bridge from the distance. Driving on this narrow bridge requires that attention be paid entering safely, travelling on bridge carefully and exiting with knowledge of how you want to exit...choose the correct lane! Nice lighted falls during special occasions.

this walk by evening when they have the bridge lit up is amazing but if you attend any evening the sky line is great with all it various business lights glowing in the distance. If you are afraid of heights, maybe pass on this one.

By strolling across this piece of infrastructure, you get to see a lot of Edmonton. It also links the area near the Provincial Legislature, and the Garneau Cinema, which shows some super art films.

It's a bridge yes but lots can be said about it. The bridge itself is a major link between core areas of the city. There is a walking path that offers wonderful views of the city and winding river. The scenery changes weekly as the...More
