Re: “Architecture Review: The Potterfield Memorial Bridge Gets Close to Walking on Water

We heard that it was approachable in Manchester in the back of Suntrust just before the Manchester Bridge going down Semmes Ave in south Richmond. So we went down Semmes and took a left right before the Suntrust building and took it to the end and found some parking alongside street then walked on the path that snakes around the Suntrust parking lot (you can't access that for parking to my knowledge) and crossed over the railroad using a wire mesh covered walking bridge, then all became intuitive after that as we discovered the path to the bridge. It's nicely done all around there with fresh plantings and a climber's brownstone retainer wall used for that purpose now. When we walked to the end of the bridge we discovered cars were parking for a small fee on that side not far from the Va War Memorial, getting there by detouring from the Lee Bridge just before the Memorial. Of course you can always park near to the Brown's Island site and walk to the river from there, but it would be a bit further than either of the two approaches mentioned.
