This is a fun spot to visit! We went on a Saturday afternoon and it's difficult to get the bridge to yourself for the full time back and forth, but it wasn't outrageously packed. The bridge itself was fun and just all the trees and what not are scenic. In terms of COVID - there's a good mix of people with and without masks, but the bridge is wide enough to quickly pass people.

This was a really cool adventure we did today. I have never walked across a suspension bridge until today and it was cool. The bridge swayed a little as we walked. It crosses a huge cavern that splits a neighborhood in two parts. On one side of the bridge is what I would call a modest house (by Chicago standards). But that would be wrong. What you see is only what is above ground level. This was a mind blowing experience and I am glad I did it.

It's worth the walk over the bridge if you are in the area. Affords you a decent view of the city and incoming aircraft to the airport. Truly 10-15 minutes in the area at the most. Worth walking over and taking a few photos in our opinion.

I am including a photo map of the Seven Bridge Walk which starts in Balboa Park and loops around thru Hillcrest for 5.5 miles. It is such an interesting walk and I went with a Y group and our leader had the write-up of the history of each bridge. The Spruce Street Footbridge is indeed a swaying one. Best to just google it and get all the info if you want to do the whole walk. It makes for a good activity for a group or I will definitely do it again with a friend or even solo.

My daughter wanted to walk across this foodbridge, and I had no intention of doing so as I am scared of heights. It turned out to be kind of fun. It's wide enough for three people and really doesn't move all that much even with others crossing at the same time. It is quite sturdy with beams and secure railings. Nice off-the-beaten-path neighborhood. It only took about 5 minutes to cross both ways, but we are glad we went. Also, no parking issues as well.
