Entertainment and Outdoor Activities at the Bridges

Dr Pepper Park at The Bridges

Dr Pepper Park is in the heart of The Bridges.  The stage sits just below the historic Walnut Street Bridge and next to the Roanoke River that adds to the cool vibe. The new location offers unique events and festivals. Roanoke is known as the Festival City for a good reason and a large part is due to the work of the DPP management team. 

Some of Roanoke's largest, most successful and fun events include The Roanoke Wing Fest, The Cinco de Mayo Festival and the Woofstock Dog Festival.

Kayak Launch

Always hoping for an outdoor   component to The Bridges, an urban kayak launch was included in the original master plan.  WVS, Carilion, the City of Roanoke, private businesses, and individual donors came together to make the kayak launch a reality.  EC Pace, of Roanoke, has completed the walking path to the launch with the instream construction to be completed in July 2016.  We look forward to this exciting addition to The Bridges and our community.
