About
Scheduled for completion in Summer 2004, this unusually designed bridge, functioning as a sundial at one end and conveying a sense of weightlessness, connects the north and south campuses of Turtle Bay Exploration Park.

We spent the night in Redding on our way north and decided to explore Sundial Bridge. It's a good destination to see and explore. Glad we did!

We took our dogs for a walk in the park and came across this bridge. What a cool idea for a bridge! However, because of the glass floor, only 1 of our dogs was willing to walk on it. The other 2 just did not want anything to do with the bridge and we had to carry them.

There is a narrow strip in the center of the bridge floor that was not made of glass and they were more comfortable walking on that.

I visited Redding from Maryland to see my boyfriend. He told me about the bridge and I really wanted to see it. It’s beautiful and lights up at night. It’s amazing and there’s a little restaurant.

This is amazing! Real working, huge sundial on a glass bridge. We went during the week and very few people, was great and able to get awesome pictures. I would definitely recommend going here wether you’re just passing through and need a break or staying. There are several additional things to see and do here with a couple of restaurants with walking, bike trails along the Sacramento River (e-bike rentals).

Beautiful looking bridge and interesting design footpath. Also saw people fly fishing down in the river and from boats.

While on an overnight in Redding, we visited the Sundial Bridge and it was well worth the time. Besides the uniqueness of this structure, and Turtle bay Exploration Park made for a great walk on a summer day.

This is an interesting bridge/work of art, and it is clearly worth checking it out if you're in Redding. Parking was nearby and readily available. It was inexpensive to visit and see and experience (i.e., free). It is also a great example of the silly mixed up values we have in the "art" community. This is essentially a high-priced decoration in a park that oversees the Sacramento River. That doesn't mean you can't enjoy it. I did enjoy walking across the bridge and back. Very nice park.

The bridge is unique and does tell time very close to correct. The glass floor and view of the Sacramento River is great. We rode the bike trail to get there which made for an incredible day.
