It should be more bike friendly. Once you go to spend some time you wish you could enjoy the experience. There were works going on on both sides of the streets.

I find walking along the river here very therapeutic and calming. Nice salt air smell. Public restroom is in one of the luxury condo buildings, so very convenient. Beautiful flowers, good restaurants. It is like a resort that you can visit.
