A date took me walking along this trail after eating at one of the restaurants on the riverfront. It was surprisingly peaceful and pleasant, considering how close it is to city sprawl. I had a great time exploring the loop around the marsh especially. The date itself didn't go so well, but knowledge of this trail is a great consolation... More

We visited Mothers Day weekend - also graduation weekend. The river is pretty but the actual walkway needs some repair and upkeep. I was a little surprised. The area down by the new convention center was super but the downtown area not so much. Lots of potential. A nice walking distance. Maybe we just went at a boring time.

I've walked this area since its inception...and with the vegetation growing up...it's getting prettier. A pleasant walking route.

I live here so fortunately for me, it still remains largely undiscovered. I can enjoy its beauty and facilities without dealing without fighting crowds. It’s a beautifully landscaped walk way filled with sculptures, benches, docks and some really awesome river views. There are more than half a dozen really good restaurants and bars. The true treasure is at the end... More

Nice restaurants and cafes facing the river allow visitors to enjoy coffee and ice cream, or a full meal while the relax to the sounds of the water. I'll be there on business periodically, and plan to spend a lot more time there!

Enjoyed a brisk walk along the water. Nice thing to kill some time while having house guests for 9 days.

NO shops-just offices and some restaurants. There are lovely walkways along the river, however, if you just want to go for a stroll on a nice day. The restaurants long here are good, but not anything too special.

Beautiful little walk along the waterfront featuring lots of shady trees, bushes, and flowers. During my visit there was some sort of festival going on. It was very busy that day. Fine dining or light snacks available along the way. Highly recommended if you like to walk in nature along a quiet path. Romantic.

Walk down North Market Street to the river if you have a little time to kill before or after dinner in town -- or to check out one of the riverfront eateries. It's not a major destination, exactly, but it was a pleasant way to pass some time outside.
