New Jordan Bridge Hike & Bike Event
The community is invited to explore the region's tallest bridge with its sweeping panoramic views during the new South Norfolk Jordan Bridge Hike & Bike event! Held from 8 - 10 am on Sunday, October 11th, the morning outing welcomes guests on foot, bike, stroller or wagon to traverse the mile-long crossing of the Elizabeth River's Southern Branch. All vehicle traffic will be restricted beginning at 7:00 am to ensure safe pedestrian access during the fall family event.
Play bridge trivia and SNJB "I Spy" with our Bridge Ambassadors while you walk the deck, or head down to ground level where the Elizabeth River Park features a kids' coloring station and more. Visitors also will be encouraged to register for the new Jordan Bridge Athletic Club, a healthy lifestyle initiative built around the bridge's free Pedestrian Walkway, that provides complimentary rewards for participants' healthy gains.
Refreshments are available for sale in the Park's Ship Store, and free parking is available in the park (carpools are encouraged). Pets on a leash are welcomed, but skateboards, scooters and roller blades are not permitted on the bridge.
Elizabeth River Boat Launch & Park Now Open!
We helped celebrate the newly-remodeled and upgraded Elizabeth River Boat Launch & Park at a Grand Re-Opening event on Saturday, May 30, 2015! The highlight of the evening for many was a spectacular riverside fireworks display sponsored in part by the South Norfolk Jordan Bridge (pictured above).
Visit the new park from sunrise to sunset and take advantage of all its new amenities including a Ship Store, Snack Shack, dog park, walking trail, picnic facilities and expanded parking options for people using the SNJB Pedestrian Walkway --check out the park's new video and virtual tour before you go. Enjoy!
