The City of Paducah has done a wonderful job of making their Riverwalk beautiful and inviting. We sat and watched the barges on the river. There were lovely park benches and picnic tables. The flood walls have been painted with beautiful murals depicting the city's...More

This is a great place to hang out, see the town History in the form of the mural walls. They serve the town to stop flooding but offer the history of Paducah as well. So wonderful. Photo ops here!

There is a good view of the rivers where the Tennessee and Ohio come together. A good place to rest a bit and catch your breath.

We were blessed with a bright and comfortable Sunday afternoon to sit by the river after taking in the "floodwall murals" on the opposite side of the wall delineating the park from Water Street. Only negative was automobile access for a short drive through that...More

The murals on the Riverwalk are wonderful. But getting to the Riverwalk takes a little doing if you are coming from the Holiday Inn on the River. Paducah should visit Chattanooga, TN to see how a Riverwalk should be done.

So you enter through one of the many openings in the Floodwall and you enter into a calm relaxed atmosphere along the river.. There are benches and tables and a park like atmosphere. You meet with locals who are only too eager to tell you...More

Hubby and I took a morning stroll and enjoyed it so much. Barges going down the river to watch, a boat dock to see, birds skipping about, what's not to love.

Nice leisurely stroll down the riverwalk. after lunch. Although the source of great consternation because of cost overruns, the finished product is nice as you view the Ohio River into Illinois. Owes Island is visibe to the south where the Ohio and Tennesse Rivers meet.

Across the street is a good sized parking lot that you could park to look around in the area, but not to do overnight parking.
