“Great Sunday afternoon walk for all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This place was amazing. We were there before the trees and flowers had bloomed and it was still beautiful. So many people were out enjoying the warm temperatures: strolling, biking and kayaking. A lot of historical spots along the walkway including a dedication to 911. Would love to have a condo and live here year round.

“Very romantic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We visited this place on a bright day. Temperatures were not bad luckily and we could walk around the canals. It reminded me of all romantic European places I've been watching in chick flicks (I've not visited Europe). It's also good for joggers or families with young kids (in stroller).
Loved it!!
As it was weekend, we could find parking easily.

“Great walk near downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The canal is very well maintained and probably the best place to walk in the whole city. You can also ride your bike or run along it with many of the other people who are out enjoying it. Great views of downtown and many fountains to enjoy. Extends to the river where you can enjoy a lookout there.

“Great idea to build a canal adjacent to the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Who would have thought that you build a canal and walking path in a city where you would not expect it? What a great idea - it gets you to other things to see (right near the NCAA hq) and then takes you through a number of other areas.

Along the way are apartments, museums, restaurants, and other historical sights

We really enjoyed the walk along the canal
