We walked along the riverfront which was a nice walk. We expected more to be there. Perhaps becuase ti was a Sunday, there was very little activity or things to do such as a restsurant or bar. It seemed like we were outnumbered by vagrants.

Depending on the season one can find a pleasant stroll along the Kanawha riverbanks. Often during the summer the park offers music attractions.

Attended a private pig roast at Haddad Riverfront Park. The country music was OK and as normal load. The facilities are great. Clean rest rooms and plenty of seating. A very pleasant evening to enjoy the music, food and river activities.

We took a walk here this spring and it was delightful along the river. Actually met the mayor while walking.

I ran along the river path twice. It is beautiful with all the daffodils, purple trees, and other ground cover. It is one of the prettiest paths I've seen. It is quiet as you're along the river below the traffic and very safe.

You will probably need to look at the city of Charleston website. I'm not sure.
