This is a beautiful bridge for taking pictures, if you go for that kind of thing. Lots of good views
There is no better bridge in Portland. Photographic excellence from every angle, especially in fog and sunset light. The park below, next to the river, is quiet and beautiful as well. Well worth the extra drive if you're interested in engineering, history, architecture and/or photography.
If you love photography or great views, this bridge is a must! I would caution families with smaller children from walking on the bridge as the walkway is narrow and cars pass by quite fast.

Cathedral Park is lovely... More
We stopped here at Cathedral Park which is directly under the bridge to get another view. We traveled over several of the bridges while visiting, but this was by far the most scenic bridge with the most unique architecture
An architectural marvel, the bridge has carried traffic since about 1931. While seeing the graceful arches from Cathedral Park is wonderful, and the view from the center span is breathtaking, I'm happy to share yet another view... this one from the center of the Willamette River. On a beautiful late summer evening the moon decided to play "touch me" with... More
Bridges are symbols as well as a means of getting over an obstacle. The St. John's Bridge is what a bridge should look like and it certainly does its job. It is actually pretty as seen from any angle. It is worth going to see it and comparing it to others.
