“Loved the entertainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

I recently went to Tartan Day South event and attended the Celtic Commotion on Friday night. The atmosphere was great and the weather was wonderful. I'll be visiting the Riverwalk again for future entertainment.

“Beautiful horizontal park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

A lovely walk along the riverfront, though you have to carefully time your visit to avoid too much heat or the bugs. We found the best day to go is a cloudy day, or even one with light rain, which helps with both issues. If you go during a sunny day remember to bring the sunscreen and lots of cool water, or in the evening you become a very tasty looking treat for all the bugs you find around any body of water. Bring your favorite repellent!

“Beautiful place for a stroll by the river”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

We love the Riverwalk for nice walks and picnics. The scenery is gorgeous -- you get a great view of the river, the Gervais St bridge, and there is a long, paved walkway to get some fresh air and exercise. There is also a lot of live music there in the summertime and small festivals throughout the year. The scenery is so nice, a lot of people have their pictures made there.

“Nice walk”

This is a very nice track, for walk, run or bike riding! A lot of people comes here for some exercise and good times. Benches as well :)

On a hot day, bring water :)

“The city got it right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

This meandering trail along the river is so relaxing and beautiful. The paved trails are wide enough that there is no problem passing groups of people. There are benchs along the way so you can sit and people watch, or just enjoy nature. Beautiful features year round with joggers, hikers, strollers, dogs all enjoying the views of the river, beautiful bridges and picnics.
