This was a very old pedestrian bridge. Fun to walk across and doesn't take too much time out of your day. Offers great views down the river. Bonus: There is a lovely ice cream store on one side.

We enjoyed an after dinner walk across the bridge. It's .45 miles from one end to the other with a nice breeze along the way. Definitely recommend this as a way to get some exercise and some great family conversation time.

This bridge is breathe taking day or night. Beautiful views. Romantic. Stroll over to Coolidge Park or grab a bite at one of the eateries.

Great area to stroll, run, ride a bike or stand and people watch. Parking around the bridge area costs by the minute or buy hours at a time.

From the Bluff View Art District to the Hunter Museum, then take the glass bridge over to the Walnut Street bridge over the Tennessee River to Coolidge Park. About 1/2 mile stroll enjoy the views!

We walk the bridge with a stroller and was impressed with the open path in the middle for bikes and strollers, as well as walkers and additional raised path on both sides for walkers. Very nice touch with the wood. Looks very authentic. Nice to...More

I didn't get married there but the bridge is pretty wide. I think you'd just need to find out the dimensions of it and go from there.
