It was interesting not overwhelming. Not something I would say stop what you are doing and go see. But it was okay

The bridge is a nice place to go for a workout or just a leisurely stroll. The bridge is very entertaining for children and can also be a romantic place in the evenings.

We love going for a family walk/run with our 4 dogs and this is always one of our favorite spots. It is very animal friendly and we love the benches every so often that is along the path just in case we need to catch our breath or just to take in the beautiful scenery.

Fun walk. We walked across the bridge back, then down the path underneath the interstate, across another bridge and back, and back to our car. Do not leave any valuables in your vehicle! Several vehicles had there winows smashed when we got back. Lots of families and people on bikes.

Fantastic for biking, running or walking. Miles of paved trail ranging from easy to challenging. Accessible to downtown Little Rock for a coffee or beer or both break.

There is a nice place to watch the valley just around the Samm bridge, but there is nothing really interesting with the bridge and the Samm as it is. I do not recommend to go to the bridge, but to go to the places down the Samm with some great views.

I walked the bridge. It was nice and wide enough for everyone. It had Benches to sit on in various spots.

We have been going to BDB since it first opened and it continues to draw us back. From the top of the bridge you can see East or West along the Arkansas river for several miles, and these views are spectacular from sunrise to sunset. At night you can see the colored lights on the bridge fade in and out.... More
