This is a good place to stroll along the river with a nice view of downtown. Not too many amenities though there are two restrooms along the way, and a Chart House, but no coffee shops or the like. Good for about an hour's walk, or you could cross the bridge and see more/eat at Jacksonville Landing.

This walk has improved a lot over the years, and is very enjoyable at night. Great place to see the cityscapes.

My hubby & I walked quite a way on the brand new looking South side walk. The walkway was nice & wise & level. My husband has difficulty walking & uses a cane and he found it easy to walk on. I saw shaded areas as well as places to sit. I didn't notice any drinking fountains. The fountain is... More

This place was a lot of fun. Even though it was a grey rainy day, it was still very scenic and fun to walk through. If you truly love scenery, then rain should never spoil it and it didn't this time either. The river water is clean (not foamy with debris and garbage like some other riverwalks.) It's also very...

I enjoyed the Riverwalk in downtown Jacksonville very much. The shops and restaurants were average at best, limited in food options, a bit pricy, but that's what it is supposed to be and would give it an average rating. It was clean and there was music which was a bit loud. But the walk along the river was very enjoyable... More

I enjoyed walking along the Riverwalk. I felt safe and secure on my own. The fountain is very pretty and love the changing lights. Everyone I met was friendly!

Although the view is beautiful and the walk is very nice the shops and restaurants are tacky and sparse. Huge disappointment as we read good reviews on this being something to do in Jacksonville--only if you just want to walk.

I remember 2 years ago when there where wooden planks and it was dodgy now it's beautiful great lights at night with occasional art displayed on walls

Nice stop to pass the time while in Downtown Jacksonville. It is a nice touch to the San Marco area that wasn't there years ago.

This was our first time walking along the newly constructed south-bank river-walk and we both very much enjoyed it. While the old river-walk was made of wood, this one is made of concrete and colorful brick pavers. Lots of places to sit and enjoy the view of the river; some with overhangs to shade you from the sun. The north-bank... More
