Continental Avenue Bridge Description

The Continental Avenue Bridge, which opened in 2014 for pedestrians and bicyclists, crosses the Trinity River in downtown Dallas. Originally built as a road bridge in 1933, it now features such novelties as a playground with geometric climbing blocks, life-sized chess board, and meditation plaza, as well as lounge chairs, shade structures, and a splash park.

For a longer ride or walk, you can easily connect to the Trinity Skyline Trail, which spans 5 miles along both sides of the Trinity River.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available on the west side of the Continental Avenue Bridge (109 Continental Avenue).
