A great place to walk
May 2021
This is located next to the American Civil War Museum - Tredegar. It is a great place to take a relaxing stroll along the James River & Canal. The views of downtown Richmond are fantastic. This is a neat place!

Nice walk in the AM

The walk is very nice, and you can see some cool graffiti and art. New condos around the area and felt safe. The “River” is smelly and wasn’t very nice looking. A very industrial and hipster feel!

GREAT walk along the river and canal!

We really enjoyed our walk on this canal path. Right along a beautiful part of the city and canal and river. Great views. You can even walk out on the bridge o see the rapids.

Nice walk with great views of bridges over bridges, rusty train trellises, nice art work on canal walls, beautiful old buildings and friendly people walking or riding bikes.

SCENIC WALK

I came here for the view and to walk off the big breakfast I had. It was chilly as a cold front was blowing through. No problem; I was dressed for the occasion. Hardly anyone around.

Nice Walk

Nice walk with statues along the way and walkways under and over bridges and under the freeway. Pretty cool spot especially on a cool night! Not terribly exciting but worth the walk! About 1 mile one way.

Enjoyed the walk

Started around 14th street and just walked in one direction for a while...all along the river. Cool art work on buildings. Weather was 60 and sunny with no wind. I only wish I had more time to keep going. Will come back and walk the other way.

Better to bike; strange walk
Jul 2020 • Couples
We needed to stretch our legs on our long ride north so stopped in Richmond to do canal walk based on so many positive comments. Walk is well paved both on 17th to 5th street which does run right next to water. The other way towards Grisham park (?) is very noisy with cars as it goes next to road. - you can barely see canal. The city has done very nice planting along this part as the flowers are beautiful and thriving.

A very nice walk
Feb 2020
Richmond has done a good job of cleaning up certain parts of their city. This is one that is done very well. It is very pleasant walking along the canal. Ther are many locations where you can walk on the path. Also after the walk there are very good restaurants that you can go to.

Good after the Civil War Museum (Tredegar) - right next to it. Also do the bridge walk (same place).
