Very sturdy cool old bridge. No place to pull over to view. It would be nice to have a pull out for cars.

I've gone over this bridge ever since I was a l1 year old girl. I once walked it with my girl scout troop. I never tire of going across this bridge. It's beautiful and definitely something to see.

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.

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.

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.

It's worth taking a drive from downtown Portland to drive or walk across this beautiful bridge. The neo-Gothic style is beautiful and evocative--whether its sunny or gray outside. Frequently photographed, this is a Portland icon.

Seen a lot of bridges and this is amongst the best eye candy. Take a walk across. It's not only beautiful, but it is an experience to walk or bike across, as many of the Portland bridges are.

It is gorgeous, especially at sunset, especially looking at it with Forest Park in the background. She shape, the color, the foundation, the lights - all of it, perfect.
