This is my favorite bridge in Portland. I just love the color and the backdrop. Not a whole lot happening in St John's but if you get a chance to drive by on your way to German-town road, its worth a quick detour

I believe the bridge was built in 1931. It is designed by the same architect who did the Golden Gate. As the story goes, it was meant to be build farther in town, but because of political pressure, it was moved down river to St...More

Elegant, classic, and a great view of the surrounding Volcanoes. I love this bridge and the park below is not to be missed.

Yes, the place under the east end of the St Johns Bridge really is called Cathedral Park. It has open space. It has summer concerts. It has a boat dock. And it's just plain cool to see and experience.
