This is a great place for a walk or bike ride. It allows access to either Council Bluffs or Omaha for pedestrians. Plenty of place to get in a run or bike ride.

I live in Omaha area so my wife and I walked it once. Iowa side has nothing, not much more on the Nebraska side. A large waste of money for taxpayers.

Great part of a nicely utilized riverwalk area. Worth the stroll along the rest of the area while you are down there too. There was lots of activities going on during the weekend we were there.

Now that spring has arrived, we enjoy strolls along the river and over the bridge. It is a great place to stretch your legs, and enjoy scenic views of the river and downtown.

It was nice to cross over the Missouri on this bridge. They had interesting placards at the height of the crossing over the river.
