  • Really attractive bridge, if you like iron architecture it is a go see and the St. Johns area has some good restaurants and quirky shops. 
  • Grew up not far from this awesome bridge. Brings back memories whenever we cross the bridge. Totally awesome landmark and yes it does resemble the Golden Gate Bridge. 
  • Many bridges and across the Willamette River, each one has a quaint Portland. St. Johns Bridge has dull white color. Bridge St. Into the area of Johns.

  • The best bridge in Portland. Opened in 1929 and designed by the great engineer David B. Steinman. He is quoted as saying "If you asked me which of the bridges I love best, I believe I would say the St. Johns bridge. I put more of myself into that bridge than any other bridge." Fun facts: - It was almost painted yellow and black (for visibility reasons because the airport was once located on the nearby Swan Island) - From mean water level to the top of the bridge it is 409 feet. - In 2015 Greenpeace protesters hung from the bridge in order to block a ship from passing in order to delay Shell's drilling for oil in the Arctic.
  • It's an absolutely beautiful bridge to walk across at night. But do be extremely careful because this bridge has a lot of accidents people drive way to fast and can't stop fast enough at the light.
  • Fabulous bridge to look at from each end...but dangerous to bicycle and walk across due to the continued use of an outdated lane configuration...packs freight traffic too close to walking pedestrians in substandard lane widths. It leaves no room for error...as we have seen again this last week.
  • Coolest bridge in Portland. My favorite forever and always.
  • St John is a perfect mix of people and events. Cathedral Park host many different musical venues. In addition to festivals, Cathedral park has paved pathways throughout the park which makes access good for everyone. Picnic tables are available through the park. There is dock access for people and boat ramp to access the Willamette river. And let's not forget about the access to the beach area for people and dogs to enjoy
