Really an amazing bridge. We enjoyed the park below the bridge too. A great river of the bridge and also of the river. We watch the boats, birds and people. Very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

it's about 4 miles north from downtown so you either have to drive or cycle to it. But it is a beautiful bridge. It has a small park on St. John's side and various events are held over there in the summer. It's a nice and quiet place to visit and relax. If you are in the area it's worth spending some time by the bridge that was used as a basis for San Francisco's Golden Gate bridge.

You can walk over the bridge, drive over it or bike over it. Spectacular bridge. You can also enjoy the riverfront park that is under the bridge.

Went to photograph this famous bridge at sunset. The sun sets behind it, so lighting was very difficult. Wasn't able to stay long enough to let the sun get below the horizon, but if you can, it might be nice. Thinking mornings would be good. Of course, if you don't care about photography, any time nice. Cathedral Park is lovely and is used as dog park so you'll get your share of smiles as you watch the pups play.

We stopped here at Cathedral Park which is directly under the bridge to get another view. We traveled over several of the bridges while visiting, but this was by far the most scenic bridge with the most unique architecture
