Had a fun time enjoying an evening walk with the family on our vacation. Kids loved racing over the river, and there is a line marked on the bridge for a great photo opportunity to show being in Nebraska and in Iowa (the kids loved being able to have one foot in each state). There is a fun splash pad... More

Make sure to go in the park visitors center first. Great displays and the park rangers will give you so much helpful and interesting information. We rented bikes from the stand right before the ramp leading up to the bridge. The bikes were $6 each and we were glad to have them. You can stand on the state line and... More

This is a 2300 foot long pedestrian bridge that crosses the Missouri River between Nebraska & Iowa. Architecturally one of the finest contributions by man to our fellow citizens. It's built in a large "S" shape and is supported with two towers by cables. At night it is lit by changing colored lights and is spectacular! The wind on the... More

You can stand in Iowa and Nebraska at the same time on this bridge! Great views of Omaha, and you get some exercise in at the same time.

My son and I took loved walking over this bridge! He thought it was very cool to be able to be in two states at once, and of course we had to take lots of pictures as well A great walk, and definitely worth checking out!

The BK Pedestrian Bridge is a nice feature connecting Omaha, NE and Council Bluffs, IA. There are activities to do on both sides of the bridge. Great place for families to visit.

The bridge had a decent view of the Omaha skyline and was a fun activity for the family. Parking was horrible. There is only a small semicircular parking area next to the bridge on the Omaha side and lots of "No Parking, standing or stopping" signs with confusing placement. That combined with what looked like remains of a broken car... More

This attraction doesn't take very long to see. You can walk across half the bridge to stand between two states, great photo op. This is something you could easily fit in between other activities.
