    We were there on Sunday. The parking was convenient to the riverwalk. We just parked on the street. It was nice that there were restrooms next to the riverwalk. Many people were out walking and there ...  more »

    This is the best stop to get a good view of the river and to stretch your legs. Very safe. Make sure you stop and read the placards along the trail!  more »

    We found out this riverwalk trail at Real Seafood Co. so we strolled from uptown to downtown. We enjoyed the walk and the view of Saginaw river. We saw lots of local bikers, joggers, and walkers there...  more »

    This pier has great views of the river and Bay City. You can get here from many places, including taking the bridge from Bigelow Park.

    Riverwalk Pier is constructed over the site of an old railroad bridge. The entrance is located in the southern section of Veterans Memorial Park. The pier stretches out into the Saginaw River, close to the actual shipping channel. The pavilion is basically just roofed shelter. The pier has no other amenities other than benches scattered along it's length. There is a railing along it's length, however children should still be supervised. Some of the old ship hulls near the (defunct) Davidson Ship Yard can be seen if the river level is low enough. At the extreme end/terminus, the pier turns to face down river. I visited that section during the 2016 Bay City Fireworks Festival, and it gave a nice view of the display. During other times of the year, you can view bulk loaders moving along the river, along with other vessels.
