Guided tours of Community Bridge have been used for the last ten years by school, corporate, church, youth, college and bus tour groups to meet a wide array of objectives. The tours are fascinating and inspiring. One Fortune 100 company uses the bridge tour and the project's story as an integral part of its corporate manager training program. Trainers say it exemplifies the program's key themes of leadership, vision, integrity, passion, courage, diversity, lifelong learning, self-awareness and creativity.

Other groups find in the bridge an eloquent collective voice that speaks about human equality and the value of diverse perspectives. Still others describe the almost revelatory power of seeing Archangel, the anamorphic projection in the bridge, a metaphor for shifting one's viewpoint, and the common ground they discover in that process. "This bridge leaves a mark on people's lives," is one recent comment.

The bridge tour is especially suited to educational groups --- at all grade levels and in multiple curriculum areas. Educators bring school groups from many states to expose their students to the multi-leveled experience of Community Bridge.

Note: Community Bridge begins a multi-year restoration process in 2022 to address moisture incursion issues in the underlying bridge structure. Tours will be suspended until the restoration is complete.
