This is a great place and fabulous spot on summer evening. It is quite a spectacular location downtown. You can get good restaurants nearby afterward.

This park in good weather has a lot to do besides the bridge. Yes it is a centerpiece, but there are gardens, hiking trails, biking trails, museums of various sorts etc. If you are short on time, you can cross over the bridge and back...More

We walked across the bridge to the gardens and ponds, saw baby geese at the water's edge, view of Lassen peak from the bridge.

Every time I visit Redding, I visit here. It's a beautiful place for a walk and for photography. There are places to sit around the park. Always a lot of people

Interesting suspension type bridge. Takes you from the Turtle Bay Exploration Museum to the park and botanical gardens. An added bonus a lot of water right now, moving quickly.

Travel Lodge, you get a voucher for a free breakfast at Lumberjacks, can not be beat, for a working persons budget. Clean and well kept place.
I'm a little confused, the attraction representative says all four answers are correct then states they are open 7 days a week 9-5. They answers state museum only open wed-spun. Which is it?

Sundial Bridge is not part of Turtle Bay Exploration Park. you can walk on the bridge anytime. There is no charge and at night the bridge is lit from under the bridge and the walk area is well lit and patrolled.
