St. Johns Bridge, Portland Reviews

  • Absolutely wonderful place! I came here to meet The Librarians at their headquarters. Had a delightful stroll with my family. Enjoyed chatting with a dog owner and then with a group of treasure hunters.

  • The best time to explore this bridge is early in the morning when it is shrouded by a heavy fog. It’s a horror movie scenario as you walk I to the abyss as visibility is only a couple of metres. From the centre of your bridge, you’ll be spoilt with the best views up the river. Also perfect photo opportunities from the riverbank looking up at the bridge

  • Spectacular bridge!!! It’s huge and tall One of the must visit places in Portland . Great view of Mt Hood and Mt Helen if weather is good . Best spot for sunrise !! Was lucky enough to see some beautiful sunrises !!! Only problem -Heavy traffic during office hours

  • The St. Johns Bridge is a work product of the great history of America. The lanes are narrow for the big trucks for sure. The joy of passing over this artwork never ends, I used to travel over it two times a day. The views are just as beautiful one day to the next. It makes me a proud American every time I see the construction--which if you have read Wikipedia know began a month before the Stock Market Crash of 1929 and provided many county residents with employment. It is magic to create such a priceless beauty at the time of our greatest economic devastation.

  • My favorite bridge in Portland. So ornate and tall. Beautiful green spires on top. Pretty arches underneath in cathedral park. Nice spot for a picnic or watching a play in the summer.
