Excellent paved walking path along the St. Johns River. If you are lucky, you might see some dolphins! There are bencges scattered along the Riverwalk if you want to stop and take in the views of downtown and the stadium.


Beautiful walk along the Saint John's River. Several statues, mosaic art and fountains to enjoy. Usual sightings of dolphins is expected 🐬 Can't wait for the famous Jacksonville Friendship fountain to reopen ⛲


This place is the reason why I moved to Jacksonville and that was long before they finished building it out. My family and I truly enjoy walking you the beautiful Riverwalk anytime of time or night. It's so beautiful and peaceful.
