Wonderful place to visit with small children. Safe, fun, and other children to play with. Walk along the river on a paved path. Every Wednesday evening a free concert at the band shell too.

I have ridden my bike, ran and walked along the Riverwalk many times and there is always new wild life to see (sometimes from the college students floating by in tubes on the river)!

This is a nice walk along the river. You are close to town and is a great spot for a picnic. We've used the park by this to play frisbee and bball.

We grabbed a sandwich on the way through town and stumbled upon this place. Nice area to sit, relax and enjoy a break. Took the dog for a walk along the river. Great views along the way. Glad we found this spot.

Beautiful river and nature walk. Not far from the charming historical district. I would recommend taking this walk if you find yourself in the area!
