Take a stroll, enjoy the view of the city and the river and unwind. No better place to do all of this.

All enjoyed the walk and delicious tacos at the north end of the bridge. Champie’s ice cream was also a hit.

This was an old vehicle bridge that has been repurposed into a pedestrian bridge. There are always bikers, walkers and runners on the bridge to get a great view of the city!
