“Beautiful Nature with 20K landmines.”
Review of The Riverwalk

The Riverwalk
Ranked #1 of 18 things to do in Mishawaka

Attraction details
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Our city of Mishawaka, even though currently embroiled in an untenable 20 million dollar civil rights disability discrimination lawsuit, continues to construct walkways, boat ramps, stairs, seating, parking, picnic and playground areas that will serve those without mobility disabilities well. These new works are grossly out of compliance with the Access Board's Architectural Requirements. The "riverwalk" has over 12,600 forensically documented architectural barriers. If you have any mobility disabilities, you need to take this riverwalk seriously. There are many, many architectural barriers that will place you in imminent peril. From stepping over the edge of an improper walk and falling into the river, or stumbling into the oncoming traffic. Because the concrete construction and curb cuts are sub-standard, the cross slopes and rises are too steep, too steep, and too steep, take every step very cautiously. When our Mayor and city council seem to construct everything from roadways to parkways with the intent on driving out all of us with impairments, its no wonder people call our town a Disabled Free Zone.

There is not much better on a warm evening than walking along the river listening to the water, and watching the assortment of flora and fauna all around. It's nice for a stroll, but it is somewhat limited. There are a few restaurants around etc, but its something you almost have to plan for as far as, driving there, and parking, then walking, and walking back. There isn't too many places close enough to walk to the Riverwalk from eating either, unless you really want a bit more of a hike. So, it's beautiful when its warm (not too bad in the winter either) but it's not quite like walking along the river in downtown South Bend where you are a block in any direction from a great place to eat, park, shop etc at any moment.

Was a very pleasant place to walk. Very clean. Felt safe. Would recommend this to others. Free. Close to downtown & places to eat.
