Getting a little run down. City is in progress of getting something done about dog lovers not cleaning up after their dogs. Have to watch where you walk!

So, Mom was interested in visiting this longest pedestrian bridge, but Dad and Kids, not so much. We had some time to fill before we went to the airport so Mom got to go. Dad was so happy - there was a lock and dam under the Big Dam Bridge AND a barge was approaching the entrance right then. Wow!... More

My friends and I love visiting when the weather is warm. Sometimes there are a lot of people so it can be hard to move around the families with small children, but for the most part around 7 pm there is a smaller crowd.

Very steep, pretty views, people fishing, huge signs about boating near the electric plant! I also noticed a lot of birds.

Great workout. Fun outing. Walk, run, bike and you can take your dog too. Took my small nephew and he loved it. We love to bring our bikes and ride. Fun to watch the boats go through the dam.

Great views, clean, and a good work-out! Just watch out for bikes but people are friendly and several bring animals.

You can either walk, jog, or ride a bike on this tour. It is exactly what it is called.. A Big Dam Bridge. The view is wonderful at night. I walked it one night with my husband, and one night with my family.

This bridge is great on so many levels. While some will not favor who paid for it, the costs are outweighed many fold by what it has added to those of us that live here and visitors
