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!

Jordan Bridge Run & Walk
The unique and popular Jordan Bridge Run & Walk event is an annual family outing that opens up the roadway to runners, walkers, strollers and more. Registered race participants are timed on their trek across the SNJB's challenging route, while community guests can enjoy the panoramic views at their leisure. Held each October, the event is free and open to the public, but only registered participants are eligible for prizes and the post-race party. Prizes include custom medals to the top three male and female finishers in 15 age categories in addition to the inaugural "King of the Mountain" title for the male and female with the fastest split to the top.
Many athletes take advantage of "test driving" the course in advance on the bridge's free Pedestrian Walkway, open during daylight hours. The bridge is closed to all vehicle traffic during race hours on the day of the event.
