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...

Stimulation junkies will soon tire, but if you enjoy level walks on the banks of a mighty river brimming with history with huge tows moving and tied to the opposite banks, this is for you, and me! In truth, it's why I came to Paducah

More river cities should follow Paducah's Riverfront Park! Great old trees preserved, and relaxing walkway along the Ohio River!

Watched some other bikes and cars drive thru the flood wall so we had to do it too. Parked the bike and took some time to enjoy the scenery. Very nice!

Nice idea, but too short of a walk to make it worth a trip. If you are downtown, anyway, by all means. This is too short for any fitness ideas. You would get more exercise at the mall. The view is underwhelming. Maybe add some local artwork or something to make the walk more interesting

Was visiting some art facilities and a museum nearby. Saw a mural in the distance and investigated. It turns out the flood wall by the river has several murals. Each panel shows local history and scenes. Pleasant experience while catching a nice walk.

We enjoyed our trip to the Riverwalk. It was a good way to spend an afternoon and see some of Paducah like in their downtown area, visiting the shops and different areas there.
