Big Dam Bridge reviews
It is on a very large park. There are lots of people walking jogging & biking. It is a dam with a lock & a bridge over it all. This made for an interesting walk.

What an amazing visit. We were blessed to get to see the locking dam in action! It was a very windy cool day but it was worth it. Interesting bridge/dam to visit.

We like dams so could not pass it up! Nice walk up the elevated walkway. Good view of the spillway and lock. Worth a visit if you want a little exercise or are interested in dams. Also on a bike path so good for that too. Love the name!
It's a great bridge to walk or ride and connects parts of the city together. Used for exercise and scenic views of the river. Some people fishing on the banks. Lots of Bridges to explore with great views throughout the city.
