The Sundial Bridge is a walking bridge over the Sacramento river in Redding, California, next to the Turtle Bay Exploration Park. It is something to see if you are visiting Redding, CA.
The bridge is an actual sundial and you can tell the time of day with it. It’s big as you can imagine, the part of the structure that jets out in the sky is the dial part. Right next to the sundial is a garden a a walkway, bike way also, along the river.
The bridge is designed by architect, Santiago Calatrava.
The design for the Sundial Bridge was conceived by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, the world’s premier bridge designer. Calatrava has built bridges, airports, rail terminals, stadiums, and other structures around the world. Though he recently completeda major expansion of the Milwaukee Art Museum, and has been selected to design the new Oakland Cathedral, this is his first freestanding bridge in the United States.
