Family walk

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.

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

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!

Nice place to visit. Decent food court. Some nice shops. Close to San Marco which is really nice place to walk around & better restaurants.

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.

My buddy and I stopped by Jacksonville mid day on a week day, and found the place deserted. I guess everyone was at work. The riverwalk was quite pleasant on the west side, and I'm curious what it would have been like on the other side.

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.
