We parked under the highway bridge in Riverside (parking lot right next to the Cummer Museum of Art) where this portion of the Riverwalk begins and walked all the way to the 3rd bridge (it is BLUE metal, can't miss it) and across there. The blue bridge has a pedestrian walking "lane". On the other side is Friendship Park, very... More

A beautiful riverwalk in the downtown. Night time is even more beautiful. Many hotels and restaurants nearby.

I love Jacksonville. I love being outside and appreciating Jacksonville. The Riverwalk is the perfect place for this. It is great for walking and biking for as little or as long as you want. I wish where I was staying was closer, I would be here everyday!

We liked the river walk, there are nice views of the city, the Friend Ship Fountain, MOSH is nearby as well as the Main Street Bridge and Jacksonville Landing. We decided if we were there we may as well do everything that was in walking distance and we did. The only negative was the homeless people near the bridge and... More

I enjoyed spending the afternoon at the Riverwalk. It is a lovely outdoor area with plenty of restaurants along the way. You can also take a quick cruise along a section of the St John's river for only $7

Attractive mural under bridge and a cool walk over the bridge at night and or day. Nothing else to do around there, though. Friendship Fountain can be viewed- best at night for colors.

The Riverwalk is a neat area to just walk, jog or run or ride a bike. There is several things close by to see. Restaurants, small parks and the MOSH is close by. Take a few minutes and watch for dolphins swimming by.

We just bought a condo at the Peninsula. So I guess you could say we live on the Riverwalk. The city of Jacksonville did a great service to the community by updating this exceptional mile and a half walk. If you haven't visited you don't know what you are missing!

We were advised to go to Jacksonville Landing but ended up spending our time doing the river walk. It is a lovely walk and you can see the downtown city line from both sides of the river. We walked across the blue bridge to get to the other side but there is a ferry you can take but we like... More
