The map looks like you are close to the Arkansas River. Is this true and if so, is there a riverwalk?
We are about 10 blocks from the river and there is walking path along the river.
No river walk but there is a historical park and a national cemetery between hotel and Arkansas river. It well worth seeing and the to old downtown is very interesting.
The hotel is about a mile from the river and the Oklahoma State line. A 1.6 mile river walk was planned
for completion in late 2016. Would inquire at the hotel.
Yes, you are within a mile of the Arkansas River, but there is no river walk. There are things to do in the downtown area area near the river, but the water flows swift in the area so it is advisable not to get too close to the river itself.
You are not near the river, as noted by the Jay G it is in the middle of town.
