The bridge is pretty spectacular if you're into bridges. St. Johns itself is pretty spectacular if your into questionable looks and jailhouse tattoos. The GOOD: Much better way to get into the downtown reaches at rush hour but only if you're coming from St. Johns ... or would that be escaping? The BAD: what the heck are you doing over... More

It's worth the drive to take some pics and see the pretty little park underneath. Not really much to do unless you catch a symphony in the park or bring a picnic.

At the edge of Portland's industrial district, the green-spired St. Johns Bridge is one of my favorite views. Grimm has filmed on the banks of the river and in the park on the St. Johns (a close-by Portland suburb) side. This time of year, trees are changing color all around. Fog hugs the hills on western hills. Highway 30 runs... More

Check out the massive cement tower footings! On the north shore you can play and have a picnic at the base of the bridge - on the grass lawns that sport a great view of the Willamette River. On the south shore there is an old abandoned 4-story warehouse full of strange and wild birds. It looks burned-out and completely... More

So many people travel to Portland and never see this bridge. Go, it's worth the extra 10 minutes to get there.

The park under the bridge is a great place to picnic. There is an excellent dock for boat launching and the bridge is beautiful. The neighborhood is very quaint and has a nice feel to it.

I love this bridge! It is a visual treat to drive over this bridge to St. John's. Highly recommend it as a route from Hwy 30 to the little neighborhood of St. John's!

Get a good view of this beautiful cathedral like bridge while listening to top Jazz musicians perform each July at Cathedral Park under the St. Johns Bridge. We bring friends, wine and picnic goodies and make it a day!

Mixtica The Saturday farmers market on N Lombard street of the town of St Johns in Portland. The offerings are diverse, preserved and smoked wild salmon was something new and refreshing. One stand had distiller alcohols offering different flavor combinations, must commend them for originality. It was time to sooth my appetite. I decided on the MIXTICA food stand. They... More

THe bridge is a beautiful was to see the "working" side of Portland and the rivers! It connects St Johns which is a fun little working town to look around in with good places to eat and friendly people. The bridge has quite a history as does the town. On the other side of the bridge you can turn left... More
