A wonderful place to walk and watch the sun go down. The signs give an historical overview, interesting to visitors. Surrounding park and monument to the Scorpion are memorable..

Repurposing the old bridge into a walking trail was a fantastic idea. It's fun to take both the upper and lower decks of the bridge for different visual vantage points. It's also fun to look at the locks people have placed on the bridge and...More
