  • Fun experience. Nice view of downtown Omaha. Good way to have a short hike from Nebraska to Iowa. Also good for biking enthusiasts.  more »
  • So, we were here on a very windy day...and it's a little bit freaky that you can actually feel the bridge move a bit beneath your feet. It didn't bother me at all, but present party- being a little sc...  more »
  • My wife is from Iowa and I am from Nebraska. Took a picture at the half way point. Fun way to spend an hour on a walk with the wife.  more »

  • Love the bridge that takes you to two states with two beautiful parks. On the Iowa side there are interactive light games you can play on the lawn. The bridge itself is very well done with lots of eye appeal. I enjoy walking around the premises in my free time. Plenty of room to add more to this park.
  • An awesome place to visit any time of year! The trek begins just off of the river front, next to an awesome splash pad open during the summer. The walk from one end to the other, and back is about a mile in length. You can walk, rent a bike, roller skate, run and even walk your dog along this awesome bridge. Just be sure to pick up after Rover though! At night it's a romantic walk you can take with your partner, or a fun filled one with the family as you watch the colored lights atop the spires change, as you progress on your walk to the state line. With a beautiful amphitheater on the Iowa side that can compliment a beautiful sunset with Omaha in the foreground, it's worth visiting. If you time your trip right during the summer, you can even catch the music from river front concerts wafting down the river, or the local casino's firework displays. Which is breathtaking effecting off of the water.
  • I love this place. It's free. It has a beautiful view. At the base of the bridges there's an area that allows you to play in the sprinklers for free. I love taking pictures on the bridge. I like that in the middle of the bridges there's a line separating Iowa from Nebraska.
  • Love this place! The view is so gorgeous. It's very well maintained and clean. If you're looking to do something romantic, this is wonderful for a late night stroll!
  • Its free. It was easy to get to. It was nice. It definitely gets used by health advocates..a lot of joggers and bikers.
