Some interesting info about bridge. Short walk over the river. Waterview with little more to see than birds. Very calming. Can park and access on either side of bridge.

Parking has 4 spots and we enjoyed our quick walk across bridge. There is a park and beach area across bridge where we saw some people splashing in water and chilling.
