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

20+ years ago, the Riverwalk was full of promise, with shops and restaurants and running river taxis to a thriving Jacksonville Landing. That is all largely gone and a lonely boardwalk with river views is all that remains.

The St Johns River is a great natural resource, but the Riverwalk experience is lacking. The "attraction" started with great promise....trying to piggyback on similar venues across the country. The City needs to look for ways to re-invent this great amenity and revitalize the great natural resource

Having grown up in Jacksonville I clearly remember what a dump the waterfront once was. I go back to Jax every couple of years after 40 of not seeing it. I was amazed at the transition from where the Jacksonville Shipyards once were, Maxwell House Coffee, and many run down store fronts, not to mention the night shift crew walking... More

I mean its there, nothing really great about it. There are very limited things to do and places to eat and drink. I did have higher expectations whenever I was told about it.

I can tell this was nice (or they wanted it to be nice) at one point, but most of the businesses are closed down and what's left is kind of sketchy.

We can romanticize reality and call this "beautiful" but the truth is the city has allowed this area to be take on an unsavory feeling. The sight of litter and the smell of urine are an insult to both the eyes and nose. Jacksonville is blessed to have such beautiful waterfront areas and our city should capitalize on these assets....
