Its a very large bridge and it is nostalgic in the sense that you can stand over the water in 2 separate states. Parking is terrible. There is nothing else really except the bridge to see.

Everyone would enjoy a stroll across the Bob Kerry Bridge. The views are incredible. We enjoyed walking across during the Taste of Omaha. Music and food on both sides of the river...in Nebraska and Iowa.

Riverboat happened to be passing by as we were approaching the bridge. Unique design, suspension bridge, amazing architecture, rental bicycles available to ride into Iowa over the bridge. Whirlwind of sun, and people as you walk from NE to Iowa.

My wife Stacy and I walked along the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge during the morning of August 22, 2015. It was a very pleasant walk and a fun experience for both of us! We started from the Omaha side and walked to Council Bluffs and back....

Not as exciting as we were expecting. It was nice for the kids to experience though. The eclectic people performing songs & dances on the bridge were entertaining. ( they were not pan handling )

The Bob Kerrey Bridge spans the Missouri River at the east edge of downtown Omaha. There is easy parking, and it's a short walk from the parking at the National Parks Headquarters to the ramp to the bridge. The ramp allows access for wheelchairs. Once on the top of the bridge over the river, there is a great view of... More

I took a walk on morning and walked across the bridge. Peaceful area and it was fun to walk across the stream between the two streets.

I enjoyed walking across this beautiful bridge. We went through the Louis and Clark display first then walked across the bridge and took the requisite picture standing half in Iowa and half in Nebraska. It is very clean and just kind of a nice walk.

My family and I have visited this bridge since our very first vacation to Omaha in 2010. We love the experience and excercise. For the last 2 years we have walked the bridge and continued on into Council Bluffs to their park and have painted canvases as just a way to enjoy our family time. We love walking back over... More

This bridge was pretty cool, it has amazing view of the river and of Downtown Omaha, also a small water fountain where kids can get wet is located at the end of the bridge on the Nebraska side. My kiddos enjoy it much and def took lots of pics!
