Lots of walkers, runners, and bikers. There is a whole trail system and the views are good. Parking fairly close too. Wish we could have went at night to see it lit up. Park service/welcome center at base on Omaha side.

No different than any of the other bridges just like it in other cities. Except other cities have venues to see on each side of the bridge to attract people to visit. You don't want to walk the bridge at night for fear of getting mugged going to your car. Maybe that's why there are no small shops ,and ,... More

We found directions to this site very poor. By the time we found it the park closed and we didn't get to see the bridge.

What a wonderful bridge and the park area around the bridge is breath taking. Wonderful area to relax and to take in the beautiful views of surrounding area. As a runner it was so special to run across the bridge and enjoying the surrounding trails both on Iowa side and Nebraska side. A must for your visit to Omaha.

What a wonderful bridge to walk or bike across the MO river. It was a rainy/dreary day but still beautiful in a different way and to be able to stand in both IA/NE at the same time was fun. Very nice park and surrounding area that would have been fun to take advantage of had the weather been better.

We visited but didn't have the boy's walk the bridge since they wanted to hurry back to the pool at the hotel but just a wonderful view. You can rent bikes and ride over or walk. Seems like people use this bridge as a form of exercise...it's peaceful being over the water.

We were on the bridge around midnight. It was a cool view, neat experience, and fun to straddle the Iowa/Nebraska line and take goofy pictures with my 10-year-old son. The park on the Iowa side is pretty cool with a light show on the huge lawn. (Speaking of, if you follow the signs near the Century Link complex, for some... More

The bridge is what connects us and is a constant reminder that it is only the rivers that separates us. Enjoy a leisurely stroll or bike ride across. Marvel at the strength of the Missouri River. Enjoy the new park on the Iowa side - lots of activities, such as concerts.

Love the Missouri River. Beautiful architecture and river view. Hold onto your hat. Find the point where you are half in Iowa and half in NE. Got my fitbit steps on that walk from Old Market area.

So much fun to take family pics at the designated area - with one foot in each state! The kids thought it was so much fun to jump back and forth - the bridge is beautiful and had great views!! It was amazing just how breezy it was up there. The parking area left a bit to be desired -... More
