“Very Scenic Jog”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

The Heartland of America Park and the path over the Pedestrian bridge make for a very scenic jog. I was impressed by what a nice area this has become.

“My favorite bridge in Omaha (:”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

You need to walk on this bridge if you're ever in Omaha, Nebraska. It's BEAUTIFUL. It's built over the Missouri River, and it connects Nebraska to Iowa! So you'll get to visit TWO states if you walk all the way to end!! As you walk, there are plaques explaning various historical events in Nebraska, and a LINE in the middle showing the BOUNDARY between the 2 states! At night, it's BEAUTIFUL, because the lights on top of the bridge changes into different colors.

“A nice walk and a great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

The bridge is in a great area and gave us a nice place to walk. It didn't hurt that the weather was perfect, but the view was great and everyone there seemed to be having a good time enjoying the great outdoors.

“Nice bridge, but doesn't go anywhere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

This is a very nice suspension bridge, architecturally interesting, and a novelty that you can walk from Nebraska to Iowa. However, the Council Bluffs' side ends near a residential neighborhood with really nothing around. It looks like they're trying to build a park, but got set back by the 2011 floods. However, it's still not much of a destination - especially to warrant such an expensive bridge... at federal taxpayers' expense.
