“Yuck”

Spruce Street Footbridge
Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

We were excited to see the bridge and check out view. Arrived and wasn't even sure if it was safe part of town but decided to get out of car and walk the short distance to bridge. Upon arriving see an over filling trash can that stunk really bad. Bridge was okay but there was no view all grown up and nasty. Do not waste your time.

This suspension footbridge was erected in 1912 and is less than a mile from Balboa Park. For me it was a moving and personal experience to revisit this for the first time in more than 60 years.

This is such a cool place to visit. Free, amazing, & picturesque! Parking was not an issue; plenty around the neighborhood, and it feels very safe. You can walk, across the bridge as many times as you would like. It does swing a bit, but not much. The architecture is also a sight to see.

I found a neighbor who was hosting a yard sale so that was an extra bonus. There isn't much to see outside of the area, but it doesn't hurt to walk around.

A Camera or camera phone is a must! ENjoy

This is such a cool bridge. It's very old and very high up. Don't visit if you are afraid of heights. The bridge shakes when you walk across it but it's not scary. You have no chance of falling if you just walk across and take pictures.

This is definitely off the beaten path, but still pretty cool to visit. It's an old footbridge, like really old, that swings...and can be a little frightening if you have a toddler, but it's still cool. I'm sure the people who live in this neighborhood (which is a cool neighborhood) are not overly amused by the bridge, but for those outsiders it's just a cool piece of local history...and usable history at that.
