If you’re in the area, take the time to go see this. I would not go there just to see the bridge. The name intrigued me, so I decided to go see it. It is big!

The Big dam bridge is a long bridge that really is big if you plan to cross it by foot. I remember walking the golden gate up and down when I got to the its mid point, unfortunately I couldn't complete this one because it started pouring and one thing most wouldn't think of is what to do if it starts raining mid way on this bridge, well all you can do is enjoy the rain and hope your smartphone is waterproof as there is seriously nowhere to hide below :)
Not having a shelter is not a complain but more of a warning because other than that the bridge is stunning, with good spacing and nicely designed to look through the river and the two sides of it. Definitely worth visiting if in Little Rock, might be a stretch to visit Little rock just to see the bridge unless you are an Architecture enthusiast or a runner/biker on bridges.

Definitely stop here if you have the time and are in the area. I don’t think it’s worth a super special trip to see this place, but it’s still neat to see. Watch for the speed humps on the way in. Plenty of parking. Lots of people jogging and riding bikes, so be ready to watch for them.

This is a walking bridge! Great park area for walking/biking. Beautifully lit at night with colorful light show.

This is a great place to get away and enjoy a walk along the river. You can drive right to the bridge and begin your walk. Lots of informative signs detailing the different fish as well as how the hydroelectric dam works. Next time, I go, I want to walk it at night.

We had read that the views here were nice at sunset, so stopped by the evening of our first day in Little Rock. We first drove past the electrical plant to a small parking lot on the water. There were a lot of people fishing nearby, and we walked a little bit along the beach to look up at the dam. Then we drove back to the end of the dam where there is another free parking lot, and the pathway to walk up and over the bridge. We walked up to the high point of the bridge, where there are some signs indicating sights and other information and the bridge and wildlife. It was probably about half a mile up and then back - there is also a bike lane if you want to do it that way. We spent about 45 minutes enjoying the evening and took some fun photos of the bridge, the water, and the areas surrounding the river.

Read someone's review and visited just before sunset - so pretty! This is a must see from the drive through beautiful neighborhood to easy parking, lots of walkers, bikers, families, it was a great visit. The bridge goes over the river but part are locks that barges go through to lower part of river. We returned the next day and watched a large load pushed by a "tugboat" and love it. Go here first, you might want to return for the exercise and the view!

As a father and a grandfather; the Big Dam Bridge has been a place that my children and grandchildren can walk and talk. We see beautiful landscape along the way. This is in a city park and cost you nothing. Well worth the time spent getting to know your children.

We enjoyed pleasant weather and nice views from this bridge. The dam was interesting. Nice place to stretch our legs and get some exercise on our road trip. Free parking and photo opportunities.

We stopped by at sunset when we got into Little Rock. It is breathtaking to stand on the bridge and take in the views. There are also many informational signs about damn. We were here for about a half an hour.
