I walked to this small section of the Riverfront from my hotel. There is a asphalt walkway built to reach the lower location. The center has a canopy covering a stage and cement seat in front, like in the amphitheater style. There were some vintage...More

On the best days or during events (i.e Live on the Levee) this place can be so much fun. However, undesirables do wander around and have seen the debris they leave behind.

We walked along the riverfront which was a nice walk. We expected more to be there. Perhaps becuase ti was a Sunday, there was very little activity or things to do such as a restsurant or bar. It seemed like we were outnumbered by vagrants.

Depending on the season one can find a pleasant stroll along the Kanawha riverbanks. Often during the summer the park offers music attractions.

Attended a private pig roast at Haddad Riverfront Park. The country music was OK and as normal load. The facilities are great. Clean rest rooms and plenty of seating. A very pleasant evening to enjoy the music, food and river activities.

I ran along the river path twice. It is beautiful with all the daffodils, purple trees, and other ground cover. It is one of the prettiest paths I've seen. It is quiet as you're along the river below the traffic and very safe.
