Killing a little time in the middle of the day, we decided to take a walk from 10th street up to the powerhouse buildings. Nice area to get some exercise. Watching the people coming down the rapids was pretty neat. The bathrooms along the area...More

Delightful Saturday walk along the Chattahoochie River in a wonderfully renovated industrial area. Great scenery and a rapid stretch of waterfall paired with heavy industrial artifacts. Really impressed with the riverfront, some of the best we’ve seen.

Very nice area and walk. You can watch the rafts and kayakers on it. There is also a zip line. They also have a park/playground for the little ones.

Walking along the Riverwalk was a little bit history lesson for the newcomers. I've been there several years before but have forgotten most of those information. It's very relaxing to just walk around and look at the river and the beautiful landscape; while reading those...More

Each time I visit Columbus, I carve out time to spend at Riverwalk. It's a well-planned and beautiful addition to the downtown area. Walking (or biking) along the river is relaxing and fun with nice wide paths, benches, parks and overlooks. There's even a bridge...More

We came here to do the geo-tour along the riverwalk, but kept running into homeless guys sleeping or hanging out (we started on the northern end). We skipped part of the Walk after reading reports about one of the parks being labeled "dangerous" by the...More

The river walk is over 20 miles long. I’d park in the parking garage in front of the Rivercenter on Broadway. The riverwalk’s only 2 very short blocks away. Some times there’s parking at 11th and Bay. Next to the Herons... More
