    The riverwalk is a great place to run, walk, or bike. It is scenic and has frequent benches, water fountains and playgrounds. My only issue was I ran around 0830 on a Friday morning and the majority o...  more »

    I'm not a employee of Tampa Bay so I'll give you a real review, the Riverwalk is falsely advised as this great place to visit while in Tampa Bay, in my opinion they need to get this place cleaned up, there's trash on every shore line, in certain areas it smells like sewer gas and human piss the plants at one time my have been nice but they need to be taken care of every week. There's very little parking open to the public and there's really no restaurants to stop by and grab something to eat or drink while you're walking, most of the under passes are poorly lite at night. To sum up the Tampa Bay Riverwalk! Go anywhere in Florida except the Riverwalk if you want to have a nice walk. Oh, and the bugs along the river are terrible and need to be controlled.

    Such a great spot! Amazing views of the river and the city. Great walking area and host to several different events. Plenty of parking at different locations. Perfect spot for family or by yourself.

    Overall very nice. Its extremely pretty at night but there's something missing. Like a missing puzzle piece. The River Walk is just like a boardwalk except, where are the tenants? If you have something like this in the florida sun there should be something to it. Its just a sidewalk basically. But it is long. Bring your shoes you will be walking for a while and be getting some nice tampa views. Still wish there was more of a ring to this place. I feel like walking in a dead mall will be more fun than this sidewalk. 😕

    This has been a wonderful addition to the downtown Tampa area. It is a beautiful path that follows the river around the downtown area. Lots of walkers, joggers and bikers after work, but still plenty of room. Locals should definitely check it out.

    Riverwalk is truly fantastic as there are a lot of activities here to do for family or individuals alike. My wife and I took a simple walk and it turned into a very romantic evening wants the sunset😉
