We walked across the bridge, and the views of the water and the locks are very pretty. It's an easy place to take kids, and the bridge lights up at night.

you feel at peace with the world watching the boats go through the lock and dam. The view of the river is beautiful.

Went with granddaughters and how they loved saying the Big Dam Bridge. A great place to get some exercise. Lots of walkers, runners and bikers. Very pretty. A nice little walk and enjoyed being outside.

This was a fun place to come and take a walk. We made a trip before it got too dark and walked around the area. This is a beautiful spot with some history and the locks were neat. You have to stay until it gets dark so you can see all the lights on the bridge.

Very pretty at night. Was lit all purple a nice romantic night stroll. The walk is on an incline so effort is needed and not recommended for elderly without a wheel chair possibly.

Went to a concert in little rock and decided to stop and check out the bridge. It was a nice walk. There were a lot of walkers, runners, bicyclists. Very pretty when u get to the middle of the bridge. You can get really good pictures.

The view from the pedestrian bridge was amazing. Thanks to the folks who commented that the bridge isn't for vehicles. However it is handicap accessable.

This walking bridge goes over the Arkansas River at the Murray Lock and Dam. The visitors walk or run or ride bikes. It is a large bridge that allows the crossing of the Arkansas River on foot. I find these bridges to be great experiences. I think I prefer the the Chain of Rocks bridge at St. Louis to this... More
