“a picnic with the grandchildren”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Riverwalk has something for everyone.The play area was a hit for the grandchildren while we sat and enjoyed the sunshine and the laughter of the children. The fountains were also a big hit with the kids. People watching was also alot of fun. We are truly blessed to live in such a beautiful city and many things are for free. Take a walk and enjoy evrything

“A walk in a lovlely setting”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Three of us strolled along the Riverwalk in the late afternoon on a sunny day. Although not a long walk, it certainly provides an assortment of scenes, including the river, bridges, skyscape, landscape, skateboarders, children at play, fishermen (saw no women doing this and don't think they were catching any fish), artwork, sculptures, even a wedding party posing for photographs. I liked the gliders and the drum sculpture. It was pleasant.

“Still Evolving”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Riverwalk is dealing with normal growing pains, but has great potential. We have been 4 times over the last year, and found it interesting each visit. Watching the skaters antics can be a little un-nerving as they go all out in most cases. last visit combined a great lunch experience at the Yacht Sea Grille (.I'll bet the Emergency Room at Manatee memorial has seen an up tick in skating related treatments.)

“Family Fun”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

This is awesome. So much to do and see. Kid friendly, pet friendly and people friendly. Playgrounds, water splash, loads of benches, swings, green grass and lovely trees. And wonderful views of the water. I loved watching all the action at the skate park. Free music on Friday night. This is a must visit.

“What a great improvement”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

The amount of money spent to improve the Bradenton Riverwalk has been one of the best investments ever. The area is so elegant and people friendly that we can only imagine how much more it will flourish from now on.
