Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge
- 705 Riverfront Drive
Today we had a playdate at the Pedestrian Bridge downtown. I was a little nervous about going because of the CWS, but it was not bad at all. It was a beautiful day, sunny, in the 80s. We walked the bridge (and Alivia, Nyah and Keegan rode their bikes), played at the park on the Iowa side, walked back, played at the splash park area, picniced and took a small walk around the area. First off, the Iowa side is under major construction. The park is just a park that was there before the bridge. Nothing special. But, the kids like it. I am hoping they clean it up a bit and make it beautiful and fun.
The splash park is fun. But, with that said, it is beyond dirty. Cigarette butts and small pieces of trash littered the area. The smell was not that pleasant. There is a Lewis and Clark visitors center there that I had never been in before. But, they have restrooms! I am not sure if they really want people to come in there for using the restrooms, but they said it was okay for us...and we appreciated it!
What a fun morning! Until next time...
