River walk is nice in some areas but sparsely populated in others. Needs to be build up with more food establishments and entertainment.

What a great place to walk and ride bikers. There is a really nice playground and fountains for kids to play in. There was also a place where they can have concerts and family gatherings.there were a few food trucks there as well.

We visited on a very hot day. It was enjoyable but I think one could enjoy it more in the fall or spring. Fabulous addition to the city!

We drove to Columbus and happened upon this riverwalk by chance. What an incredible place for family and fun. We love the fact they have incorporated the old buildings into some vibrant and fun. They have a park, zip lines and white water rafting. Wow...More

We enjoyed walking the river walk. There were areas that you could access up the stairs with parks, playgrounds, and other sights that were clearly marked on the walkway. You can bike on it, rent kayaks, white water raft in the river & some people...More

Beautiful place to walk and see the rapids, and if you have the time you can zip line, white water rafting, fishing, cayaking, or just a nice place to relax

Just moved to the area. Looked forward to the Riverwalk for getting in some walking for exercise, however I've been told that it's not safe at all. Any insight??

We strolled once during the day & once at dusk, we did not see anyone/anything that made us uncomfortable - we felt perfectly safe. As another reviewer mentioned, perhaps someone who lives there would have a better answer... More

Occasionally. Check the uptown Columbus website and Facebook page for the concert series. Live music pops up randomly all the time around uptown!
One review indicated you can cross into Alabama. Does that mean that the Riverwalk continues into Alabama - that you can walk into Alabama? If so, how long a walk?

You can walk into Alabama in two places and there is a Riverwalk there also, mostly around the 14th Street and Broadway area. The walk takes about 5 minutes if you walk at a snails pace. You can run from Georgia to Alabama... More
