What a beautiful, family friendly place. Loved it

Could just walk it all day long, so much to see, watch, do, enjoy. Worth the time to get there and def going back when we are in that area.

The word Riverwalk brings tis o mind San Antonio's gorgeous stroll on the river, with shops and restaurants on either side. This is a VERY short sidewalk along the river in Bradenton with no other attractions except a hospital across the street. The view is pretty, but the skateboarders were a turn-off.

We went on a Saturday when the farmer's market was on, great experience. Then we walk along to see the boats and bridges, it was great. Very peaceful. Will go again

Nice walk with play scape areas for the grandkids. I've been here twice. Summer months there is a small water play spot that's perfect.

Very nice and well maintained boardwalk with great views and some stops along the way like playgrounds, beach volleyball area, and a skate park. different and interesting benches (such as swings and loungers) add to the experience

The River Walk is very relaxing and beautiful. It's a good place to unwind. The walk along the Manatee River is so peaceful.

I grew up in Sarasota and if you know anything about this area, Sarasota has a complex of being better than Bradenton, but I have to say Riverwalk supersedes the equivocal counterpart in Sarasota (Marina Jack)... prettier views, more diverse groups of people... better all around.

Had our family here for a visit. Nice place to walk, view the river and just relax. Nice park for children. Skateboard park on the riverwalk also. Lots of people just walking and some had their dogs along for a walk too. Nice place on a beautiful day.

The Riverwalk is a beautiful setting on the Manatee River. We liked it so much we got married there on stage with 3000+ of our friends. We were married at the Blues Fest. There are usually lots of fun activities on the waterfront. Realize Bradenton works hard to make this a beautiful, fun experience for all. Music and Food make... More

I was told its a great place to go for a walk. I consider a walk to be at least 2 miles. Online said the walk was 1.5 miles. I thought that was each way, it wasn't. Nice to be by the water but not a place walk for exercise.

Thank Gary D
