“Great Place For Walking”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

It follows along the river and is wheel chair friendly. Just loved the life sized bears, which are just a few of life sized sculptures around the city.

“Simple Boardwalk”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

This is really where the city did not come thru. It is now part of the hub trail for the city as a rec route and being adjacent to Station Mall, it can be crowded in the warm evenings or weekends to the point you cannot walk on it - way to narrow for a boardwalk - not like on the Atlantic ocean or Quebec City. It is nice for a walk along the river which has a nice view but not much else here. It does lead to a conservation island to the east end that goes out into the St. Mary's River where you can see the rapids and the turn of the last century swing bridge which was the first locks to pass thru the waterway. The area is well lit with parking at the mall. Not worth a specific visit unless there is an event in the area or you are at the mall and want to walk with an ice cream.

“Great job by the city !!”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

This boardwalk is beautifully done . Walking on it is a pleasure . Much of the waterfront is taken by apartment buildings , but this boardwalk helps keep a lot of it for use by locals and tourists alike . Wonderful view of the river, the rapids , and the ships . A camera is a must if you want to preserve your memories . The breeze off of the river is fabulous on a very hot day, but can cool off at night, or be chilly on a cooler day , so dress appropriately . Watching the boats go through the locks is a very cool thing to see , even if you have lived here all of your life . A must see .

“A fun stroll along the river”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

It is fun to watch the boats day or night, may not be appreciated by the younger travelers. Be prepared for cold breezes off of the river.

“Nice Trails”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Stopped by after work. Was very impressed on the work that has gone into this trail system. You can even access Whitefish Island through these trails. While along the shore line take the time to sit and watch the ships going through the locks. Very neat to see. Lots of critters on the trail.
