Riverfront Plaza Reviews & Ratings
Excellent view of the Mississippi River. Went there after dinner for a walk with family and loved it. There are bikes available if you want to ride. Surprisingly it was not at all crowded and you could sit peacefully there and appreciate the view. There is a train track parallel to the river. If you are traveling to Baton Rouge, this place is a must visit.
Rode bicycles down there. Got memorized by how breathtaking, clean and beautiful the levee, oaks, river and surroundings are. There is even a bike tool rack on the levee path provided by the city in case you have a tire issue or something. We went just before sunset after the work crowds left. Very relaxing and fun place to ride/walk.
One of my favorite places in Baton Rouge. Only wish we kept our water cleaner. Great for kids and first (or second or third...) dates.
My husband and I decided to walk there again tonight had been there before. It was nice had plenty of lighting could seat on the benches or stairs. It's amazing to see the great Mississippi River up close and personal.
Great place to visit. Not enough of the locals take advantage of this. The only negative I have is I wish the walkway on top of the levee went all the way to the end of the levee at the North end. Instead it just stops a hundred yards short and becomes gravel and grass, rough walking, so I tried to walk down the side to get out of the gravel and ended falling all the way down the the street and sidewalk and broke my foot! Bad! So a nice day at the levee and pier ended very bad. Other than that it was a very nice day on the levee. Bill, LA
