A great place to park and rest awhile and watch the river and boats go by. You can park in your car or get out and walk around or have a snack on the picnic tables. Pretty and relaxing .

The Paducah Riverwalk is a nice place to walk and spend some time just looking at the river. Excellent place to have a picnic. With the murals depicting the history of the area, it is also very educational.
