“Big Dam Bridge in Little Rock”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Great, great way to get a wonderful walk or bike ride with or without the dog! Fabulous views, lighted at night and, in good weather, great people watching, particularly on Fridays and Saturdays....day or evening.

“It is a big dam bridge, and I am not "cussing."”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

We live close by this wonderful pedestrian bridge, and we never grow tired of it. The structure is amazing, and the setting is wonderful. Our family likes to go out near sunset and walk the bridge in the cool of the evening. To walk across and back takes less than an hour even if you take the time to stop and enjoy the view. This is a great free activity and a fund experience. And you can enjoy telling your friends you visited the biggest dam pedestrian bridge in the world...just for fun!

“Unique view of Little Rock”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Built high atop a dam on the Arkansas River, this bike and pedestrian bridge offers a unique view of the ridges around Little Rock. It is part of the extensive bicycle paths in the Little Rock area and shows the natural beauty of the area.

“Really Nice”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Since the pedestrian walkway was placed upon the bridge this has become a popular place for bicycles and walkers alike. Good access to the area and great lighting upon the bridge at night with multicolored sequenced lighting along the bridge. Nice light show of sorts after dark.
I don't care where you go anymore, it's better to travel in a group when going out at night, here isn't any different.

“dam bridge”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

This is not just a bridge. It does controll the water flow, but has other features. It is a lock system to help large boats traverse the differing water levels in the river. We watched as one boat moved through the canal and the gaits closed to raise the level til he could sail out smoothly.Impressive! But it also has a bike and pedestrian walk that goes across the high bridge with long ramps on either side. Popular place! The bridge is lined with state flags on the top. All this is great but we came late in the day, so we could take pictures of the beautiful sunset west of the bridge up the river. And we weren't dissapointed! Another "must see" in Little Rock!
