St. Johns Bridge aka the "cathedral" bridge was constructed in such a way that the concrete supports look like a medieval cathedral - both on the top and underneath. People use this as a backdrop for wedding pictures. Interesting.

There she is -- the iconic bridge that all other Portland bridges aspire to, and the gateway into our little hamlet of St. John's.

This bridge is so beautiful. Small and welcoming. Drive underneath it and park. The gardens and park under the bridge are beautifully landscaped. No wonder people get married here, Cathedral Park. Named appropriately as the pillars look just like a cathedral. Fabulous place for a picnic.

I go across this suspension bridge on a weekly basis, and have never thought to write a review on it! I would suggest that someone walk across it for the full effect. If you drive across it, it's still great, but you can't take in the view of the river as well. Cathedral Park is below, which is another great... More

We were lost and made a turn that brought us suddenly onto the St Johns Bridge. It was an amazing structure and so beautiful looking out over the river in the spring!

First time seeing a bridge with architecture as this one. A great little stop on our way out of town. The park can be a bit confusing and out of the way to find (even with a Garmin) but it's worth it if you have some time and a good camera.

Great bridge architecture. Built with many of the same techniques as the Golden Gate. See the rest of the bridges by Jetboat is fun too..

This puppy is way up there! Portland is the city of bridges and this is one of the biggest. Note to fishermen: there is a great boat launch just below the bridge on the east side of the river. this is an excellent and productive fishery!

beautiful! Exquisite iconic architecture of Portland. This is a beautiful example of classic building. The Golden Gate Bridge is said to be modeled after this iconic bridge. The Cathedral park underneath is very quiet, quaint and peaceful!
