Nice park with great views. The flowers were also pretty. The kids enjoyed skipping rocks along the lakeshore. The grounds are well maintained. There are several picnic shelters and a visitor center with restrooms.

There are no grills in Bridge View Park however there is a roadside park a couple of miles to the west which has grills and picnic tables and also overlooks Lake Michigan and the bridge.
