A nice wide path for easy walking, with several benches along the way. A good place to relax and enjoy the day or evening. Easy parking and nearby restaurants.

A very nice little walking path by the river. Safe for the kids to run ahead. Great food trucks nearby and plenty of benches. Always a nice breeze coming from the water

Nicely landscaped and very peaceful right by the river. There are many beautiful places to sit and relax. It was hot in August and it was a bit more pleasant by the river

We parked free and walked the trail. The views of the water are beautiful. It is all free and the path is level. No shade at all.

We walked today after lunch for some fresh air. Saw many people out with their dogs. Path is paved concrete so it is good for wheelchairs or baby carriages. About one block from the police department
