Get Directions

71.73 (acre(s)

A beautiful location for an afternoon walk or romantic evening stroll is found just off of 31W on East Riverview Drive. The Riverwalk has become a popular outdoor photography spot due to the dramatic look of the walking bridge, the beautiful landscaping, the stone walls, and a balcony overlooking the river. At night, the scene is illuminated by large globe lights that change colors resembling the effect of the Northern Lights. There is also an intricate stone map of Bowling Green, Kentucky at the entrance of the walking bridge. RiverWalk Park is handicap accessible, has park benches lining the walkway and restrooms for public use (restrooms close at sunset). The park is also part of the BikeWalk BG Trail system, which encourages fitness and outdoor recreation. For reservations for special events contact 270.393.3549 or visit our website online at for pricing and Downtown Facility Rental Application.
