This is a great spot for a morning walk. The sunrises are spectacular and the skies at sunset are colorful. A nice play area for young kids, and an elaborate area for skateboarders. Would have given this an excellent rating but homeless sleeping on the benches in early morning can be a turnoff.

I'm so glad Bradenton has the Riverwalk. We really enjoy going downtown and walking while taking in the beautiful view. There are many places to stop and rest, various informative boards and even a nice playground for the kids. Excellent addition to the city!

The river walk indeed is by the river and there are certainly a few stops for activities/ sites for couples or families - but was expecting a bit more of a walk and a bit more commerce / restaurant options as this was ripe for the opportunity. If walking from the bridge start- you walk past the hospital where it... More

I love coming here on the weekends to walk. There is a beautiful waterfront view of the river, boats , and you can see over the bridge to Palmetto. It's a good place for picnics and they have swings to sit and enjoy the day. If you are visiting Bradenton, it's worth the walk, which is about one mile one... More

Skateboard park? check....fun (complete with pirate ship)playground for little kids?-they got it! Art installations? several nice ones-interactive, too! Chairs and swinging benches? CHECK! I noticed there was also a bandshell and great views of the water with heron and pelicans flying by. It looks accessible for those who are in wheelchairs! Great job, Bradenton!

This is a great place to get some exercise it's about a 2 1/2 mile walk to end and back with plenty of places to rest along the way, including restrooms and drinking fountains. There is an ice cream shop at the end of the walk. There is a splash park and play area for the kids, a little information... More

I've been to riverwalk for not only the view, but for exercise, fishing, local shows & events, fireworks and so much more! Not too dirty. Fun to go with family, friends, business, or alone really.

The entire Riverwalk area is a wonderful asset for the local community, as well as visitors. It offers many different venues for varied activities and entertainment. Congratulations to City management and other supportive parties for prevailing in their desire to create a better downtown atmosphere.

The Bradenton River Walk is a mile plus walk right along the Manatee River and provides a beautiful view of the river, boats, marinas and condos from it. It is a terrific place to stroll with a date or family and there are activities for younger children at various points. Just an excellent way to spend part of an afternoon... More
