This bridge is an interesting connection between Omaha and Iowa. Great views of a not so interesting river in a bit of an historical location. It really is a nice easy walk or bike ride with a nice little splash park for the kids. The Iowa side has a nice park and a great path. If you look close you... More

Nice Park on the Iowa side with live concerts on Sunday nights, starting at 6:30PM. Great views. Good walking/biking trail.

This was a mile walk across the entire bridge. There are benches along the way if you want to sit down. You can stop and return at any point. The bridge goes from Nebraska to Iowa so the kids liked walking across the Missouri River to another state.

This is and always will be the most romantic place I've been. My fiancé just proposed to me in the middle of the bridge. Thanks all who were there to witness it and the encouraging words!

I live close to the pedestrian bridge on the Iowa side and enjoy running over it and into Omaha. It is also a nice spot to take family when they come to visit. It is about a mile over and back and you get some good views of the Missouri River, TD Ameritrade Park, and the downtown skyline.

We live here in Omaha, but get a lot of visitors from out of town. We have taken a number of them to this bridge. I call it "the bridge to nowhere". But, it is still kinda neat. Everyone we have taken there has also enjoyed it.

Did not know what to expect on the Iowa side. Was nothing there to see so we walked back into Omaha.

Really enjoyed an evening stroll with my wife and young children. Beautiful views and a neat bridge. Kids had fun standing in both Iowa and Nebraska.

This was underwhelming, to say the least. You have to walk quite a ways to get to the bridge. When we walked across to the Iowa side, we were kind of looking at each other and thinking, "Okay, what do we do next." There's a small playground on the other side-- again, a good distance from the bridge. The bathrooms... More

The bridge is supposedly open 24 hours, but the parking on the street is closed at 11 PM. So. where do they expect people to park if they want to walk over the bridge after 11 PM? The person who answered the information number listed didn't have any idea when the park in Omaha closes or when the lights come... More
