I absolutely love walking the "riverwalk." It's a beautiful walk literally next to the water on the st. John's river, which at points during the walk the water level will be at shoulder level next to you.

We visited this river walk and we where very disappointed. It's deserted and has nothing going on. Many people used it for a walking track or dog walk but we thought it was like other river walks with shops and restaurants very disappointing.

The new Southbank River Walk is absolutely stunning! You must see it. Great job by all of those involved in the planning and execution. Besides all that, it was done in record time! It’s wide, it’s solid and it will accommodate walkers, runners, dog walkers of just a wonderful stroll by our great river with the City skyline in the... More

Excellent for walking along the river with family members. There is plenty to admire while walking. I am still in the hunt to see a manatee.

This walk is just not that exciting. Concrete pathway along the river in the city. Can have some characters hanging around in this area of Jacksonville.

This was my first visit to Jacksonville and we stayed at the Hyatt on the riverwalk. It was an awesome experience. The statues were beautiful. It was also convenient to shopping, night life and restaurants. I'd definitely go back!

shopping seems to have dried up and restaurants were mostly just bars so when we walked through at 7 PM on a Tuesday night there wasn't much going on except some homeless dudes and a few joggers. Got back in the car, paid the parking and drove across the river to eat at River City.
