It bridges a dam and its big! A great spot for walking, biking, tiny wedding. Great view of river, great way to get from NLR to LR. Watch out for dog poo that pet owners don't pick up.

This bridge offers beautiful views of the Arkansas River looking back on the city and looking up the river toward the north bridges. During the fall, the views are especially beautiful with all of the trees turning radiant colors.
