At one time Riverwalk was a nine place to visit, but like most places in Augusta the fad has worn off. Very little to no maintenance not a place to walk after dark only at high noon with a body guard. Maybe someday Riverwalk will receive the attention it should have. Basically nobody's paid a whole lot of attention to... More

Love going to the market at the river walk in the summer. Great food and fresh fruit. There is a couple that sells fried fish and fried green tomatoes that is just delicious.

When the weather is right this is a beautiful place to stroll. In the spring,summer and fall the greenery and flowers are beautiful beside the river. The winter just offers a better view of the river itself. On Saturday mornings there is a wonderful market during three seasons too.

Although the Riverwalk should be a centerpiece of Augusta, it is rather disappointing. It continues to be too short for any real exercise and has some lonely sections where one would not be advised to travel after dark. It's potential, however , is incredible. Worthwhile to see once, but definitely not a "wow" experience.

What a spectacular setting. Lots of space to move around. The beautiful walk up and down the stairs. Places to eat by the water. Plenty of wildlife to see. Nice homes along the bank. Just a peaceful and quiet place for a run or a walk. Pet friendly. I loved it!!

It is hard to think of levees in Georgia. Rome and Augusta both have them to protect from river flooding. Augusta has made theirs into a social and health center. A social walk around and on top can be shared with friends, family, couples and singles. Great for photo spots. Several good restaurants and convention center is in area. Seasonal... More

The view was great. Lots of things to view and visit. If you get tired, they are places to sit inside or outside.

It's a nice walk, and the river is very scenic. But we walked from one end to the other in a short time and there isn't much to do unless there is a festival going on.

Nothing else to look at in this area so take it all in….There are a lot of benches and spot to stop and reflect along the walk. Quiet and picturesque….

This is beautiful walk along and well above the Savannah River. Not many shops, but some very good restaurants are nearby.
