While visiting the Tn Aquarium we walked to the Walnut Street Bridge for a short walk across part of the bridge. The scenery is cool to see from the bridge. We had taken a cruise earlier in the day so it was cool to see the same scenery from above.

Very nice open pedestrian bridge with gorgeous views. People were riding rented bikes across the bridge. I would love to find those if we get to come back.

This bridge is designated for pedestrians only and crosses the river. The bridge has a historic value and I am glad it has been converted to a pedestrian crossing. You will love the nice walk on top of the Tennessee river and enjoy the wonderful scenery from the bridge. There are interesting places to see and visit on both sides... More

Walk across the Walnut Street bridge at sunset is simply amazing! Watch for bikers, runners, strollers, etc. This is an active city!

Great use of an historic bridge pleasant for a stroll across. Be aware that after rain the timbers get very slippery needs something done about this!

The kids loved walking across the river. We really enjoyed the little donut shop on the north shore.

Wonderful way to recycle a traffic bridge. It is well maintained and clean. Excellent place for exercise or a family stroll

This was fun to walk down with our dog. Lots of people on the weekend. I would compare it to skyscrapers in New York in that, it is the coolest building, but if you want to take a picture of it you have to be on another one.

Although there were many young joggers, it was a pleasure to walk across the Tennessee River on this bridge. It was very nicely kept up and safer (railings to protect small children) than when I crossed years ago.
