“Great bridge for photographers - classic!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

My brother use to live in this part of town. I recommend going down to the park directly underneath it for photography purposes along with being on either side of the bridge. Classic look and beautiful to take in all types of weather conditions.

“Beautiful View!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

While my boyfriend and I took the bus to get to St. Johns (it was about an hour and 15 minute drive) it was totally worth it! We loved walking around the town and walking over this bridge was so much fun! Although if you are afraid of heights not sure if this would be ideal. It was sunny and clear out so you could see the city from the bridge! Not many tourists make it out this way since it is not an attraction but if you enjoy being outside and architecture definitely go!

“Walk around the base after you drive across”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

It's a good drive if you want to experience the city, and if you're into the architecture of the bridge then check out Cathedral Park. You can play Frisbee under the bridge and swim out to the concrete pier. It's fun to look up from the ground and see firsthand just how tall the bridge is.

“Beautiful bridge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

This bridge is beautiful. You can park below and walk up on it for a beautiful view. There is a park underneath with flowers. When we visited they were setting up for a wedding.
