This was a lovely walkway. Leisurely walking and biking with gorgeous views of the river. Near river front restaurants and brew pubs.

We walked today after lunch for some fresh air. Saw many people out with their dogs. Path is paved concrete so it is good for wheelchairs or baby carriages. About one block from the police department

Nice park with a pretty view of the river. We sat and talked/vistied with our company. It was a bright sunny day and a great meeting place if you want to be outside. It's near the waterfront Pavillion, but we were here on a Sunday...More

City has done a lot to improve the waterfront area. Still a few transients here and there but we'll lit and very safe during the day.

We stopped in Bangor on our way to Moosehead Lake. We walked the River Walkway when we were there. I would recommend not walking at night. A lot of vagrants.

Nice walk down at the river. There were a number of street vendors selling food. Well marked and easy to follow. Good option to walk out of down town going towards the Casino.

Nice for a stroll. Not very many trees but a lot of picnic tables. Food trucks available, but not on Sunday.
