Stretching 213 m (700 ft) across the Sacramento River, Sundial Bridge gives visitors easy access to a nearby park and also claims to be one of the world's largest timepieces of its kind. The bridge's 66 m (217 ft) tall tower acts as the "hand" of the sundial, holding the structure entirely above the water, and you'll find that markers on a nearby plaza provide the clock on which the shadow falls. Marvel at the bridge's design, which incorporates decorative glass, tiles, and translucent structure pieces that make the profile extremely distinctive. Plan your visit to Sundial Bridge and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Redding vacation planner.
Sundial Bridge reviews

It looks cool and all but on a damp spring morning the glass deck was pretty darn slippery. I didn't fall but there was s fall while I was there. more »
Beautiful place.to walk. They have done a great job. Turtle Bay Exploration Center is located there and has a lot to offer as well. Well worth a visit. Lovely scenery and gorgeous river views! Recommend it!!
I go there quite a bit just to be see it and meditate on life for a couple of hours.
