If you don't go outside and walk the Riverfront area along the downtown Reno Truckee River area you cannot "know" what Reno has to offer. Take the walk all of the way to the Rose Garden area, walk back, and then enjoy a movie, or...More

It's sad that the old one is gone, but the new one is quite pretty. I like that it lights up the river from underneath. It's much wider than the old bridge - probably much safer too! I know there are people who will hate...More

An OK bridge for walking and for some traffic. Crosses the river which can be scenic, depending on the time of year. Downtown.

The bridge used to accommodate parking but since the remodel you can no longer park. Instead the walkways are much bigger for those who travel on foot or even bike. It's a beautiful bridge and for safety reasons I am glad they did the remodel.

It's a nice bridge with small arches over the Truckee river. A short walk over it. It's a nice sight right downtown.

A brand new, beautiful bridge- the nicest stroll in Reno. Lovely view of the Truckee River, with wide sidewalks which can accommodate groups of pedestrians walking in different directions. Nice distance from traffic, so that you feel safe.

It looks terrible, it's a very poor job. They should have made it look like the old historic bridge instead of the ugly design some nitwit chose.
