  • If you like history, you'll enjoy a stop at this bridge. Be sure to park on the IL side as the MO side is closed. The bridge is well-maintained and easy to get to. Beautiful view of the river. We were...  more »
  • Taking senior portraits; Missouri side was posted as closed. Drove to the Illinois side and it was open! Worth the drive, as always!  more »
  • Such a wonderful place to visit except for the high crime. Unless there is a planned event I would recomend you STAY-AWAY. No police presence and hoodlums are everywhere waiting to prey on out of town...  more »

  • First off, DO NOT PARK on the MISSOURI SIDE! of this park. As we pulled up to park a police officer warned us of the extremely large number of car thefts and break ins that occur on the Missouri side of the park, he told us to drive the extra 15 minutes and park on the Illinois side, and man was he right. The Illinois side of the park was clean, under video surveillance, and so so SO MUCH NICER than the Missouri side of the park. Now that is out of the way, this is such a neat place to visit. Park your car and walk across the bridge, it's an amazing place and is full of great photo opportunities. During the winter and fall the wind is really brisk, so dress appropriately!
  • Whatever you do don't park on the Missouri side where the parking is blocked off, your car WILL get broken into :(, becareful around this area not safe. Good travels to all....
  • I loved walking across this bridge about 10 years ago. But I was disappointed on a trip through St. Louis this week to see the parking area closed. Combine that with a major construction project at the arch, and my St. Louis experience this time didn't quite live up to my past experiences.
  • I have been visiting this bridge for many years now . I visited when the Missouri side was open, I parked my vehicle and would run or walke three or four times a rose and back. I have never had a problem. Reading a few of the reviews, it was stated vehicles were broken into two and three years ago while parked on the Missouri side. Well this is far from the truth, considering the Missouri side has been closed for over four years now. So if you parked there, you were in a no parking zone. I love this bridge, it is one of the best walking areas in the community, park on the Illinois side and enjoy your visit.
  • Awesome way to see the mighty Miss! I walked over from the Illinois side while on a road trip to Missouri. Wish we had repurposed old bridges like this up in Wisconsin.
