Help Us Add Restrooms to the Big Dam Bridge

The Big Dam Bridge Foundation (the Foundation), the city of Little Rock, and others, are campaigning to add a permanent restroom and pavilion on the Little Rock side.

  • • Opening in 2006, the Big Dam Bridge (BDB) had over 1 million visitors in 2013.
  • • The only restroom facility on the south side of the BDB is two port-a-potties.
  • • This is a multi-phase project (click here to see the phases).
  • • The Foundation needs to build evidence of community support to pursue matching grant funds.
  • • The Foundation needs to raise $50,000+ by August 15, 2014. To help get there, the Foundation will match your donation dollar for dollar up to $30,000.
  • • Should we reach our fundraising goal, Little Rock will provide more matching funds and will seek an additional matching grant that will help us complete the project!

Planned Project Phases

Phase 1: Restrooms

Phase 2: Pavilion with elevated walking path

Phase 3: Concessions

The Big Dam Bridge Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are deposited into a separate capital improvement account established by the Foundation for this project. Not one penny of your donations will go to the Foundation or be used for advertising or administrative expenses of the Foundation. There can be no guarantee that we will receive all of the funding needed to start Phase 1 during this grant cycle. If we do not receive all of the funding needed during this grant cycle, all funds deposited into the capital improvement account will remain in that account, until they are applied toward building a restroom at the Big Dam Bridge. If the donations raised exceed the cost of Phase 1 of the project, any excess funds will be used for Phase 2. If the city of Little Rock does not pursue Phase 2, any excess funds will be maintained in the capital improvement account, until a suitable capital improvement project is identified along the River Trail.

Please thank and support our friends in the community.

The level of excitement and support for this project within the community has been overwhelming. The Foundation could not have taken on this project on its own, and it has been heartwarming to have so many of our friends in the community offer so generously of their time, energy, and resources. It is amazing how frequently we heard offers like: “We want to help in any way we can. Just let us know what we can do to help.”

Please thank and support these giving members of our community.
