This is a great location! It runs beside the water and has a great view... Unfortunately, that is it- the rest of the scenery is and was homeless people. I am from Atlanta, GA and I am very used to seeing homeless people but this past Memorial Day weekend was ridiculous! What has happened to Jacksonville? We parked a few... More

There were some kids who were students at the local arts school playing jazz music on the sidewalk and it was the best. We danced and gave them a donation. Good to see kids doing positive things.

I was excited to visit the Riverwalk, anticipating a casual waterside dining and shopping area. It is actually quite sad. It just looks old and tired and looks like it would cater more to the college bar scene. It has the potential to be something beautiful and inviting with a little attention.

The Southbank Riverwalk has been completely rebuilt, and is now a 1,400 foot long concrete and brick paver Riverwalk. It has wonderful views (Northbank skyline, passing boats, bridges, and sometimes dolphins swimming in the river), plenty of benches (many with shade sails), a beautiful Navy Memorial / fountain. Located near Museum of Science and History, with easy access from all... More

Sunny Sunday morning. As I planned to meet my husband at Jax. Landing, I decided to walk on the Riverside. I was enjoying the views of the southbank, when I saw a group of homeless people underneath the bridge. They were looking at me. I was a little bit scared, so I waited for some person walking by and just... More

This was our second trip to the RiverWalk. Last year there were a lot of areas under construction. We assumed they would be done this year. A couple of them were, but most of them were not. The nicest part is over on the Jacksonville side between The Landing and the stadium. The other side near Friendship Fountain looks to... More

Visited Jacksonville about nine years ago on New Years and visited the river walk. The place was jumping and businesses were thriving. This time it looked like many of the businesses were closed and it was like a ghost town. It seemed the only people hanging out on the river walk were the homeless. The bright side was the Jaquars...

We heard that it was a nice place to walk and see the city from. That's about it for me. It had a nice water view but the rest reminded us of a tired worn out place. Like I said we were not impressed at all and at one point we saw someone following us! I did not like the... More
