Looking at the artwork sold at Portland Saturday Market, it is clear that many artists have been inspired by the St. John's Bridge. The bridge is unique, stately and casts shadows that are magical. Photographs, paintings, earrings and other art reflect the nature of this gorgeous bridge. We were recently at St. John's Park, under the St. John's Bridge. The... More

This historic bridge is so photogenic that people come from everywhere just to take different views / angles of it. I have photos from dawn to dusk, in snow, ice, and rain. Black and white to color especially fall is spectacular. On a clear day you can actually get 2 if not all 3 mountain views from one end of... More

While traveling on this road to the coast the speed limit is very low the bridge has been improved since the last time I was in Oregon.

The tallest bridge in Portland - 200 foot navigational clearance. This steel suspension bridge spans St Johns area of Portland and the northwest industrial area. It has two 408 feet tall gothic towers, a 1,207 foot center span. There's a park underneath on the St. Johns side called Cathedral Park.

Saint Johns is a most quirky and interesting corner of Portland. The bridge looks like a cathedral - and is surrounded by a park with trails, art, and some interesting plantings of native plants. Walk around the water treatment facility to see some interesting uses of nature to serve technological problems.

The bridge offers beautiful views of the river and Portland. Take it on your way to/from Forest Park.

I've lived in the City of Bridges for several years and this is still my favorite bridge. Picture worthy.

I often go out of my way to cross the SJB. When I was teaching my daughter to drive I had her cross it countless times. From Cathedral Park (at the eastern base) you can really marvel at the majestic design...I understand it was modeled after the Brooklyn bridge in NY but, from the pictures and movies I've seen of...

This bridge is a beautiful sight to see. It's not the safest to walk on in my opinion, especially not with children. Underneath the bridge is a pretty park area where weddings have taken place.
