The riverwalk has everything you could imagine. Beautiful river views from the downtown area all the way to Ft. Benning. Miles and miles of pretty well maintained paths for walking, running and cycling. You can also view the new white water course up close and personal. Great entry points all throughout to access different areas of the city.

This place is very beautiful. Well maintained and provides a great places to walk and relax by the river. I recommend coming down here late afternoon so you beat the heat. Phenix City is on the other side of the river which is where I am staying. Next time I visit Columbus I will be sure to try the whitewater... More

The Columbus Convention and Visitors Bureau personnel suggested that we visit the Riverwalk since it was near their office facility. WOW - it was amazing! We had never seen whitewater rapids before. We later found out that this is where the 1996 Olympics held their rafting events. We found the rapids exciting and yet tranquil to watch.

So pretty and quiet. Really enjoyed walking by the river. If I had more time we would float it or do tge zip line.

In the area for Fort Benning family weekend. Took my soldier to the Riverwalk to see what it was about. Went early in the day before it was busy or hot. Great stroll to catch up on life. Only negative is overwatering some of the slops. The watering flooded some of the walkway.

We loved watching the kayakers and river rafters when the water was high. We were here in July and unless you love the heat, walking if a sweaty endeavor! It's fun to see everyone on the river and zip lining across it.

Loved the riverwalk...so much to do and see. Took a run, watched a wedding take place...even saw someone walking a Clydesdale. It was a great place to people watch.

I really liked the riverwalk. Visited twice this past year and found it to be a nice option to relax and take a lovely stroll with my husband. The first time we went together, it was in April of this year, we walked around a bit and then walked towards the river. We sat on the rocks, put our feet... More

Every visit I make to my mother I always take my dog down to the Riverwalk area. I usually go to the gazebo located near the Georgia Power Plant. There is a bathroom and a covered area where you can sit in the shade and enjoy the sounds and views. I'm not sure but I think this is like 6... More
