Found this place to be peaceful, beautiful and full of history. I did not want to leave. We sat on the bench and watched the boats pass, laid in the grass and took many beautiful pictures.

The flood wall murals are a unique touch and give a Cliff's notes overview of Paducah history. Some murals offer clues for other things you might like to explore further in the area, which is handy. This is a walking activity entirely outside, of course, so wear sunscreen/take an umbrella. Only partially accessible by wheelchair. The other side of the... More

This is an interesting place to sit and watch the barge traffic on the river. Plenty of park benches and picnic tables.

The murals on the Riverwalk are very interesting. We walked and read the stories about each mural. Definitely worth seeing and going down by the Ohio River if you are in the area.

The best river walk I have seen yet and to know when you look across the water you are looking at another is just amazing, definitely going back.

Not really anything special. Yes, you're walking along an area that has some economic history for the city, but...

We visit this area often as our granddaughter enjoys going to the riverfront, watching the boats, looking at the murals and the train engine. There are many neat things to do within walking distance of here and also some good restaurants. The murals are wonderful along the flood wall. The River Heritage Museum is also well worth a visit.

Downtown Paducah is a neat area with lots of little shops and restaurants. You can tell the city puts a lot of emphasis on this area. During the warmer months you will find quite a bit of activities going on downtown. The walk along the river is fine if you just want to stroll around but there is not much... More

This is a wonderful way to learn some of the history of Paducah Kentucky. Market House Theater also gives "ghost tours" which includes history. Definitely recommend that tour.
