I loved this little bridge. It was quite short so if you wanted a good walk you had the option of heading into one of the parks after crossing the bridge.

I cannot believe that 22 million dollars were spent on bridge that leads nowhere. I have to think that money could have been spent on many more useful items. It ranks right up there with the Kearney Arch.

We were amazed by the night time views of this lovely modern bridge, especially as the moon was full the night we were there. We stopped in after visiting downtown and finally got on the right track for the small parking lot for the bridge. Pedestrians and bikes only, but watch for bikers zooming down the bridge. Walk across the bridge and stand in two states at the marker. The view of downtown is great at night too. The bridge is popular and was safe and well used when we were there.

this pedestrian bridge is not an attraction ! how utterly embarrassing to call it an attraction! it's simply a pedestrian bridge over the ugliest river in the u.s. ! at the iowa end, you get off into weeds and bushes ! the omaha end is simply downtown omaha - whoopee ! it looks real nice
on t.v. at night, but it's not an attraction to go on ! another reason why omaha is just a place to pass thru on the way to the rockies ........

The completed Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge offers a neat perspective on the Omaha skyline. Taking a leisurely walk and stopping along the way, the bridge offers scenic views from one side to the other. Council Bluffs has added a lovely walkway as well; in Omaha, the shoreline is more developed with a variety of things to see and do. The bridge itself is architecturally beautiful. A nice place to visit and a lovely attraction for visitors!
