Walked from Jacksonville Landing to the Cummer and back. On the way you'll get to see, first hand, some of the homeless folk that live and hang out along this walk. Did I feel threatened? Nope. But I certainly wouldn't be walking along here alone at night.
The walk takes in some amazing urban views... under the bridges, over railway lines with great views across the river.
All in all... a brilliant inner city experience.

The riverwalk is currently under construction so access was limited near the hotel. The walk passes by several of the bridges over the river. There is a small park with restroom facilities along the walk. That was helpful. The walk is used by both visitor and locals. It is a popular spot during the lunch hour.

It has little charm, other than it is a great improvement from how trashy it used to be. It is not a safe place. It crawls with those looking for your $, who would commit a crime to get it. I do not recommend this for anything but large groups that can protect themselves. Please don't bring your children here as it makes you a target.

We parked under the highway bridge in Riverside (parking lot right next to the Cummer Museum of Art) where this portion of the Riverwalk begins and walked all the way to the 3rd bridge (it is BLUE metal, can't miss it) and across there. The blue bridge has a pedestrian walking "lane". On the other side is Friendship Park, very pretty at night or to watch the sunset over the city. We walked back the same way we came to make for about a 5 mile walk. Plenty of places along the way to grab a quick bite to eat or just a drink on the river, or just to grab some exercise outdoors. We felt safe the entire length of the trail.
