If just sightseeing, not worth the trip. No view, NO BATHROOM. It is just a pedestrian bridge. No biggie.

BDB is great for a casual evening stroll to watch the sun set over Pinnacle Mountain. Certain times of the year there are tons of spiders in the railings and weird flying bugs, but I love going here to walk off a food baby after a dinner date :) It is popular with cyclists and runners, so be mindful of...

We love to ride our bikes out there. It connects little Rock and North Little Rock. On the LR side you have the River Market and restaurants to take fun break. On the NLR side you can ride down to Burns Park. Beautiful scenery.

This is a huge bridge. Nice for a leisure walk and pretty at night to see the downtown area and river below. Preserved nicely. Great place to view the July 4th fireworks.

If you are looking for a place to go for an hours stroll this is a great destination. The slope up to the top of the dam is just enough to give you a good bit of exercise while keeping it fun. The view from the top of the dam is awesome so if you are considering visiting the dam... More
