Good place to take photos but could not find good parking. There are benches along the middle that are both good and bad. Good to relax and watch the river. Can be bad for photos.

We took our family from Kansas there and we were all pleasantly surprised! It is a great piece of history and just a nice short drive from San Antonio.

Stopped by on a Sunday with lots of families enjoying the water and view from the bridge! It is a little out of the way to find but defintely worth it. Also limited parking.

Absolutely beautiful bridge and surrounding area. The water below and waterfall are beautiful. You can even walk underneath the bridge and go in the water.
