We've enjoyed the River Walk for years, participating in events, walking to the market, riding bikes and much more. It is a fun way to get some exercise and have a destination like going to Old Town for a pizza or some ice cream.

A nice path for biking with planked boards along much of it and a water view. However, there will be small groups of individuals hanging out under overpasses and in areas which aren't easily seen, smoking marijuana and carrying on at all hours. Go with...More
