It is a big bridge! We only walked part of the way and turned around. The park wasn't particularly interesting. It would be good if you wanted to walk/jog/exercise. There isn't much other reason to go there.

This is a good stop if visiting Little Rock or if you enjoy going for a walk or jog. There is parking, restrooms and connections to paved trails. You can also watch the operation of the lock.

Beautiful walk up and over the Arkansas River. Day or night worth the time! Good parking on either side of the river which separates North Little Rock from Little Rock.

This is a huge bride that winds through a part of Little Rock. There's some nice views that you can experience as you travel along the bridge.

First, you cannot get to the Big Dam Bridge from the Clinton Library. PArk at the bridge, you can literally cross it in 15 minutes or spend hours there. Hope this helps.
