Nice quiet spot to take pictures. No fees involved. My son enjoyed crossing the bridge and then going down the stairs to the river's edge.

This is one of our favorite places to take guests. First of all--it's free. It provides the best view of the river--great photo shoot too.

This bridge has been here as long as I can remember, there was a flood that nearly destroyed. It is fun for kids and you can teach them about the physics of how the bridge works.
