The North and South River Walk in Dayton are beautiful levee-top walkways along the Great Miami River, between Main Street and the I-75 Bridge.
The South River Walk is a shady, bench-lined crushed gravel path about a third of a mile long. Part of the walkway is cantilevered over the Great Miami River Bikeway, and then follows the levee behind the First Baptist Church, YMCA and The Landing apartments.
The North River Walk, currently under renovation, features a sunny, quarter-mile path along the top of the levee. It soon will include a swing and an accessible ramp. Views of the downtown skyline are impressive from the North River Walk.
Both walkways include lighting for pleasant evening strolls.
