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....

The riverwalk offers a peaceful path along the water. But downtown JAX is simply dead. As mentioned elsewhere, the Jacksonville Landing complex along the riverwalk is run down, and the offerings are less than impressive. I laughed at the long line at Hooters, which pretty much indicated that no one was willing to go to any of the 6 other... More

Jacksonville was a great vacation. The riverwalk at night is so pretty with all of the lights and sounds going on. We walked the river walk and crossed the bridge. It was awesome! I definitely recommend going if you need the exercise.

Was not impressed at all. The complex and riverfront walk was run down and dirty. Many of the shops and restaurants were closed or out of business. They need to pick up the cigarette butts, power wash the brick sidewalks near the building, clean the windows and doors, brighten up the inside and get some air fresher. However the water... More

Daily I walked back and forth on this riverwalk and enjoyed views of the river. The only downside some might see if that there isn't much along it as far as shops and what not (The Landing is a HUGE disappointment) but walk is well paved, has plenty of benches, water fountains, and bathroom facilities available.

Visited the Riverwalk late in the afternoon after a Conference in Jacksonville. While the weather was extremely cold for that time of year (low 40's) I walked both sides of the Alsop Bridge. Cold weather aside, the views were breathtaking and I enjoyed snapping lots of photos. I would have enjoyed riding the Sky Rail but couldn't find it.
