Paducah Riverwalk is a walk downtown along the river. It has trees, grass, bench, memorial plaque, wildlife, birds. A nice place to think after reviewing the historic district and the park.

Nice murals but a little secluded and isolated from the other tourists. It's a policeman regularly patrolling this area though. Happened to be there when they have a farmers market and that was very enjoyable.

The River Walk is a unique combination of art, history, river park. It is at the edge of the downtown area which is also a neat place to visit. Get an ice cream cone or a sandwich at one of the nearby shops and just relax on a park bench and watch the river activity.

I know you're supposed to stop here when you are in Paducah, but I never thought we would enjoy it so much. The quality of the art while telling the history of Paducah is genius. Make time for this on your visit.

Very informative. Easy to get to. Lets you read the history of how Paducah was formed. You can drive behind the flood wall and see the river traffic. The murals are exquisite. Very detailed. Really liked the one mural that had the telephones in order of how they first started to current day. Very high quality paintings that are very... More

We were recommended to visit the murals along the downtown riverfront, we were definitely not disappointed! The paintings are beautiful and fascinating as well they do a great job depicting the city's history. We were a little disappointed that Friday evening about 5pm virtually everything was closed, including most restaurants.

This was one of 4 great items of visit in Paducah, KY. But each place we went asked us to go down to the Riverfront and look at every mural. Most historian know of the Great Flood Paducah, and other cities had in 1937. A wall was erected to assist in any alleviating future catastrophic floods. The city decided to... More

What a peaceful and superb spot to relax, catch views of the river, and to watch the passing river traffic! We visited on a Saturday night, and it was evident that the Riverwalk is a popular place with many in the community as there were perhaps as many as 400 others spaced about the area, and sharing in what was...
