Stumbled upon this early morning during a business trip. Found it to be a delightful experience. The art is interesting. The views are phenomenal. It was a nice intersection of history, commerce and modern art. A lovely public space.

This is a must because the art is defintely worth it and changes regularly. You might also spot a barge or a River Boat while you are on this great walk.

This is a really nice outdoor activity; get out and enjoy some fresh air and look at some art. Take some cool pictures with the family.

We walked from the river museum and aquarium to the shot tower (which is where the walk ends). Very nicely paved (and wide!) path along the river front. There are a few spots with steps leading down right to the water. No swimming or wading,...More

There are a few select pieces of art on a nicely groomed walk along the Mississippi. We got some good exercise walking and observing the art. Would have loved to see more pieces of art, though. Pleasant way to enjoy the river.
