You can stroll, jog, or power walk, the choice is yours. Museums, parks are located along the way. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy the scenery. Very safe and families with their dogs come out in the evening.

A long concreted track along the side of the river all the way through town, down to the South. Great asset to the city

Soooo glad we went! Very pretty landscaping - lots of photo ops. The Keeper of the Plains and all of the info about the Native American history was very impressive and informative. Made me proud of my Native heritage!

We walked from the Keeper of the Plains - over the bridge and towards the Troll. Lovely hot summers day - people walking, jogging and just relaxing in their lunch break. On the way back we watched the Herons wading. Nice pitstop on the road trip.

Well maintained and usually lovely place to stroll. Much prettier when the water is abundant of course. Some nice places along the walk to take photographs, too.

My family loves this place! We go weekly. It's a great walk and you must see the Keeper at night with the fire!

Until I had the opportuntiy to stay at the Hyatt in Wichita, I had no idea this trail existed. It is right out the door of the Hyatt (as well as a couple of other downtown Wichita hotels). There is a wide paved path on each side of the river, starting just south of US-400, and extending north farther than... More

I was in Wichita for a conference at the Hyatt. The riverfront is spectacular: so inviting, clean and very scenic. The 2 mile loop from the Hyatt to the Keeper of the Plains walking bridge is outstanding - loved it!

Great view of downtown from the river and a nice park area. Make sure to go back at night when they light the ring of fire.
