I loved this little bridge. It was quite short so if you wanted a good walk you had the option of heading into one of the parks after crossing the bridge.
I cannot believe that 22 million dollars were spent on bridge that leads nowhere. I have to think that money could have been spent on many more useful items. It ranks right up there with the Kearney Arch.
We were amazed by the night time views of this lovely modern bridge, especially as the moon was full the night we were there. We stopped in after visiting downtown and finally got on the right track for the small parking lot for the bridge. Pedestrians and bikes only, but watch for bikers zooming down the bridge. Walk across the... More
this pedestrian bridge is not an attraction ! how utterly embarrassing to call it an attraction! it's simply a pedestrian bridge over the ugliest river in the u.s. ! at the iowa end, you get off into weeds and bushes ! the omaha end is simply downtown omaha - whoopee ! it looks real nice on t.v. at night, but...

The completed Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge offers a neat perspective on the Omaha skyline. Taking a leisurely walk and stopping along the way, the bridge offers scenic views from one side to the other.

Probably not a destination visit, however when in downtown Omaha perhaps taking in the Old Market (a destination visit), the walk from Nebraska to Iowa across the wide Missouri River is worth doing. Iowa side of bridge still a 'work in progress' so river and bridge are main focus.

It is good to visit the bridge by evening so that you can have day & night view of the bridge and... More
The Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge is a very nice attraction to take a walk, ride a bike or get the the casino's on the other side. It has history facts as you walk along the bridge. Nice stroll. I didn't get to see it at night, but I hear the lights are awesome.
Had guests from out of town. the bridge is a neat experience to share with people from out of town, whether family, friends or business constituents. Also, nice outdoor experience and change to routine exercise.
My girlfriend and I actually had gone to the nearby National Park Midwest Regional Office Visitor Center of the Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail located at 601 Riverfront Drive. It was October 1, the first day of the federal government shutdown. The building was closed. So we walked over to the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge. We spent about an... More
