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!

It has unique architecture and color. It is part of the Portland Marathon. It is shown often in "Grimm". It is a symbol!

I would not go out of your way. But an interesting route from Portland to Seattle if you are driving is via the bridge west of here and you could then see this bridge. Not worth a special trip.

One of the many beautiful bridges in the Portland area, this bridge spans the Willamette River in North Portland. Lush parks surround it, and that makes for a nice time to just look at this work of engineering beauty.

This bridge is gorgeous. It is by the same designer as the golden gate and it is more beautiful in my opinion. Defiantly worth a drive in either direction.

This is my favorite bridge in Portland. I can just see Wildwood, I mean Forest Park with it's lovely trees on the other side from St. John's. A beautiful sight to behold.

Love this stunning architecture structure for a bridge. Traveled across it on my way to watch a University of Portland basketball game.

Portland is Bridge City, and after seeing the strong and sturdy industrial bridges downtown, when we saw a picture of the pretty St. John's Bridge, we just wanted to go see it in person. It reminded me of a cathedral, but with steel instead of stone. Without a heavy architectural design to weigh it down, it's elegant and delicate without... More

Gorgeous old bridge just on the edge of the city. Always worth a drive across if you happen to be in the area. The park is not much to see but its good to let your dogs stretch their legs. There are many feral cats in this area however so be sure to keep you pups on the leashe.

A truly beautiful site, spanning the Willamette River. Not many bridges can compare with the look of this bridge. It has been featured on television shows like GRIMM, and the LIBRARIANS.
