One can not experience driving across the St. Johns Bridge without visiting Cathedral Park below it on the northern end. Go check it out!

Bridge is one of the most beautiful in Portland. Drive across and admire the views, but also visit Cathedral park to get some really nice photos of the bridge.

St. John’s Bridge is Probably Portland’s most beautiful bridge. It’s a shame the craftsmanship and smile hasn’t carried on. Pack a picnic lunch something cool to drink and a blanket off across the bridge go to the park relax read a book enjoy your day....More

I was born and raised in Portland, and my favorite bridge has always been the St John's. Its Gothic arches are stunning and the views are spectacular. Make sure to also visit Cathedral Park underneath the east side of the bridge!

From either end of the bridge, the view is impressive. To the East, you see the Cascade mountains; to the West, Forest Park. A note of caution: go really early in the day to avoid a fairly constant stream of traffic.

Really nice bridge to drive over as you get to Forrest park. Make sure you do it. There is also a park underneath as well

We drove over several times while in the area. Traffic in the city is an issue no matter which road or bridge you are on, this is no exception.

If you are a lover of architecture you have to take in this classic bridge design. The public areas underneath are charming and great photo opportunities. Pack a lunch and take time to stroll and relax. The images will stick with you a lifetime.
