Love the walking, great things to do fro free on the weekends.. Sometimes there are free movies on the park for family viewing. Felt safe and enjoyed the spot.

We love to boat up here and enjoy the festivities. We were disappointed there wasn't anything on the 4th of July. We love the concerts and enjoy the park.

A really nice downtown outdoor concert venue along the banks of the Kanawha River. Especially nice during the annual festival in June.

A nice place to sit and enjoy the sun on a lunch break downtown (now that it's above water, anyway) Events are held here over the summer every Friday night with free live music and a few other events are held less regularly (and for money) throughout the year. Ask your friendly local.

We had a nice stroll along the riverfront with family this past weekend. I can see how this would be a nice area for outdoor concerts and festivals. Convenient metered street parking is available.

This is a beautiful setting. Gorgeous scenery. I loved it when they had the Stern Wheel Regatta! I miss that festival. It used to be so much fun. I'm not sure why they quit having it?? Im not real sure what all they do now at the park but would be a wonderful setting for a wedding.

We were fortunate enough to be there for one of their free concerts. Street block closed so vendors could set up. Great evening to be outdoors!

A nice place to walk and see the river. The free Friday night entertainment brought out the crowds and food vendors. A fun place to be.
