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 for a 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. It's an exciting addition to The Bridges and our community at large.
