  • We live only a few blocks away and take advantage of walking or jogging on this amazing bridge. I have taken many beautiful pictures from this bridge, especially when we had some flooding here. There ...  read more »
  • This bridge is handicapped accessible. You walk along the bridge over the Missouri River between Nebraska and Iowa. There are markers in the middle, so you know which state you are in. 
  • If you're ready for a nice walk on a beautiful day, this is the place to go. It was great to be able to walk across this bridge and say you were in Iowa. It is a suspension bridge, so hope you're not ...  read more »
  • Grab a daily rental bike in the hot summer time there is a station at the spray park on the west side... Or if your in Iowa on the east side tucked under the bridge. Lewis and Clark landing in Nebraska is a find and a great stop. The massive park on the east side is great for large get together and a lazy day enjoying the river.
  • The staff here is so super nice. The kids had a good time with all the things to do. I will definitely be back someday. Before we went I saw pictures and reviews online. From my experience I was still overly impressed. It's a place that you have to experience yourself to understand how wonderful it is.
  • Way cool!! Easy to get to, easy parking. Loved feeling the sway of the bridge as the wind blew. Slight incline might be challenge for elders.
  • This is probably one of the most underutilized places in Omaha. The sunsets here are awesome, you can bike, run, longboard, or hangout. I come here a lot. I wish more people in Omaha would enjoy the riverfront and this bridge. In the middle you see the dividing line between Nebraska & Iowa, great photo spot, on either side there are trails to enjoy too.
  • Very cool pedestrian going over the Missouri River. Really good views over the riverfront complex in Omaha. The kids thought it was cool because on the bridge it is marked where Nebraska and Iowa borders meet and they could stand in both states at once. Check it out!
