I've always liked the River Walk. Lots of great memories here and occasionally they have great events here! Love running here with my dogs as well.

The Riverwalk is great. Take a stroll and see how beautiful historic Columbus is at either night or during the day.

Concrete walkway with steps down to water, meanders along the river. Beautiful and peaceful with rapids for kayakers to enjoy. Borders the University campus. Great for relaxation.

We loved watching the white water river rafters. Saw several flip over, reload and try again. Looked like they were having a fun time.

Now this is some the fun for everyone. You can watch white water rafters, kayaker, paddle boarders all go through the Rapids. Also great to walk or bike. Walking distance to restraunts and shops.
