Scheduled for completion in Summer 2004, this unusually designed bridge, functioning as a sundial at one end and conveying a sense of weightlessness, connects the north and south campuses of Turtle Bay Exploration Park.

Very nice park

This was a very nice park. Lots of room to walk around. Would like to go back in the summer to explore a bit more as it was raining when we were there.

We've heard a lot about this bridge before we ever arrived. It's definitely good looking but we were really surprised to find it so very short. We were there to watch the finish of the Redding Marathon so it's not as if it's a special trip just to see the bridge, so that makes it ok. If you're in the... More

If you happen to be in Redding, this is a fun place to spend a bit of your day. The bridge crosses the Sacramento River and has expansive views from all directions. Kid friendly environment makes it worth it for the whole family but good for just adults as well.

There are more spectacular works of architecture in the world and the designer of this beautiful small bridge could and has his works ranked among them. For this green, oakey Sacramento River oasis it might seem incongruous but you'll quickly see how it's stark, sweeping whiteness turns the blazing Redding sun into a cheerful partner, come to rest above the...

Worth walking over at least once. It's very interesting architecturally and actually does function as a sundial in fair weather

You must walking the glass bridge and walk all the way around and under this to truly appreciate. When you walk under structure there is a nice area just to relax and enjoy the river. This location is dog friendly.

Spanning the Sacromento river, the Sundial bridge is the gateway to many hiking and biking trails in the shadow of mountains close to Mount Shasta and Shasta lake. The design is a bold design which cost taxpayers times the original estimate of 2.4 million dollars. Stand on the bridge and watch fishermen in boats and waders fly fish in the... More

As a local resident of the areas we often forget about the splendor of beauty in our own backyard. I try to take time to walk across several times during the year. Every season has a new view!
