As part of our anniversary celebration, we walked the Riverwalk Pier after dinner. The evening was perfect, the sun just beginning to set, the water sparkling, and the beauty of this area provided the perfect ending to the evening.

My daughter and I were pleased by the Riverwalk Pier---It was very clean and well maintained. It was enjoyable just sitting on the bench and watching the wildlife (and the pokemon fanatics :) )!

Beautiful waterfront. There is plenty of places for a picnic and close enough to shops that you can get some walking in.

We sailed on the Appledore IV while she was at the Fairport Harbor Tall Ships Festival. Watched a beginner sailing class on the river. Watched teens and adults walking around or... More

We walked along the beautiful clean pier. We watched a large sailboat getting ready to sail and children getting sailing lessons. It was a great place to enjoy our awesome ice coffee from "Brewtopia", a downtown coffee house a block away! It was a very hot morning in July, we enjoyed walking under large trees and being able to get... More

We stayed near the Pier and walk the river to it. It is a very safe and peaceful walk. There is plenty of space for walkers also some good spots to spot and eat and drink.

It's a place for a relaxing walk, viewing fireworks over the 4th of July, fishing, or just sitting and reflecting on the day.

We had perfect weather to check out the riverwalk pier. I would highly recommend this area for runners/cyclers. There are a few areas where the geese have taken over, so watch where you are stepping! Benches are placed along the way so you can stop and enjoy the riverfront view.
