We went here for the Kalmar Nyckel Halloween fun event being held on the Riverfront 10/24/2020. Kids were encouraged to wear their costumes and join in the fun. We parked in front of Big Fish and made our way onto the boardwalk area of the riverwalk. Here you could see the Kalmar Nyckel was docked. Staff from the ship were dressed up, telling stories and sharing information about the tall ship. Shoprite was here handing our scavenger hunts (one for the riverwalk & one for the tall ship itself) for the children to do along the riverfront for fun & free pumpkins. The DCM was also set up with a photo-op area, miniature sidewalk sale, children's obstacle course and a children's craft table. We thought it was a nice community event. We decided to walk along the riverfront and look for some of the items on the scavenger hunt sheet. Along the riverwalk you will see the Riverfront Market, Big Fish Grill, Iron Hill Brewery, Constitution Yards, the Delaware Children's Museum, Riverwalk Mini Golf, the Shipyard Shops, Timothy's restaurant and the Russell Peterson Wildlife Refuge. Joe's Crab Shack appears to have closed. You will see some educational signs on the history of the area and Shipyards. You will see remnants of tracks and the old cranes from the days from when this was a Shipyard. Frawley Stadium is here in addition to several hotels, the Delaware Theatre Company and the Chase center. A few newer hotels have popped up along the riverfront and they seem nice. Apartments/Condos have also popped up over the years. It seems they are trying to breathe life back into and improve the area, but I wish they would do something with the actual shops here. The Shipyard shops are really disappointing. They are nearly empty. It seems the only thing really in there is a GYM. I wish they would do something with that "mall" as it is a disgrace. Penn Cinema popped up in the area in addition to the trampoline park and mini golf. The water taxi is also available on the waterfront in addition to dinner cruises on the Riverboat Queen. They really are trying to make a go of the area. Overall, we enjoyed our visit with the Riverwalk. During the day, it feels pretty safe. There are people walking and biking. However, there were a few homeless seen on the benches here too. I would not go here at night with the exception of the holiday events held here by the city that are monitored by police. The restaurants are open for lunch and dinner. So, it is nice to get a waterfront view for a meal here. It is nice to take in a minor league game here during the summer. The wildlife refuge at the end of the riverwalk is a really nice area to walk & there is even a FREE Little Library box there. I do enjoy the historical education signs/cranes along the walk in addition to the unique bird houses. I would recommend for a daytime walk or lunch meeting place.

I came here with my daughters from New York since Joe Biden put Wilmington on the map. We started out walk at the Shipyard and ended at Harriet Tubman Park, and then back, eating lunch at Bank's. We saw a few news crews set up along the route. I found the walkway to be very pretty and peaceful and serene, I especially enjoyed the birdhouses and the Adirondack chairs throughout. I thought that the Riverwalk was under-utilized, though. There were very few people, mostly dog walkers. I wonder if it has to do with all the office workers telecommuting due to COVID. This is a great example of urban renewal.

Great place to walk after a day of driving. Many stores and shops closed but nice bar (Timothy’s) with good food and ice cream store next door. Lovely views. Ask for Riverview.

The Wilmington River Walk is a revitalization of the downtown riverfront of Christina River. If you live in the area and/or visiting for a few days, it is worth exploring the path for jogging, biking, or strolling. Other than that, there is not much to do. Good place to walk while at the train station and waiting for trains or enjoy open air space after eating at nearby Market Street.

We went as a big group for a picnic and a walk along the river but it was impossible to enjoy as it was extremely cold and windy.
