Perfect walk while eating ice cream from ‘The Ice Cream Show’. Nice views. The benches on the bridge are comfortable but the bridge rail blocks your view while sitting down.

Sure enjoyed making across the bridge early this morning. There were many walkers, joggers, animals, etc. It has a great view and is easily accessible. You won't be disappointed!

An excellent way to enjoy the weather and the really nice park below. Bicycles and strollers are allowed and there is the occasional bench if you need it. It is approximately a 1/2 mile one way. Shops and restaurants at both ends.

This is an old bridge condemned for vehicular traffic, so it was converted into a half mile walk from downtown to the North Shore. It has a nice view of the city.

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.
