  • My family and I had decided to come here the last week we were in Little Rock for a 6 month relocation. We had gone in October, and the foliage in the surrounding area and sunset were just beautiful. We walked to the center of the top of the bridge to take in the view, and then walked back down on the side where we had parked. This is such a wonderful treat for those who are able to visit :)
  • This is great place to walk, jog or ride bikes. There's always a few people fishing too. It's clean with lots, but not to many people out enjoying the weather. The benches on the walkway over the river are comfortable and have a great view downriver of Emerald Bluff.
  • This is a fun walking bridge, especially when people pick up after their dog. It offers great views of the river and the surroundings.
  • Beautiful scenery. Walkers, cyclists, runners, skateboarders, rollerskaters, scooters, strollers. Just a geat place to just be active and outdoors alone or as a group.
  • Great place to go for a walk. The area is well lit and feels safe so you don't have to worry about taking your family.
