Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park Reviews & Ratings
Perfect free way to cool down during hot days. Kids love it. Grass area it’s a nice open area during nonevent days. River walk it’s calming and lovely for walks, bike rides, or stroller rides. Trick o treating it’s great every year.
Good place to hang out with family. If you have kids they are going to love water fountains. For adults it is a relaxing place. You could walk around or use Scooters to enjoy
I love this park for so many reasons, but being it's the best park for everyone is #1! I love when festivals are held here. It's in a super convenient spot downtown on the river. Its absolutely beautiful! The playground is great for all ages and kids and parents stay relatively late. It's in the middle of a children's museum and event hall. Surrounded by bars, taverns, and eateries. Its a part of the Riverwalk, so it's a good spot to start! The kids love all the bright lights and water show with the fountains. They normally play in it.
Love this park, really scenic and positive vibes that are much needed in an industrial area! At night, the fountains light up with LED lights! There are tons of inspirational/motivational quotes carved into the brick walkway. Overall, amazing place with great energy!
I loved the environment at this location. Great view and great environment to spend some time with family and friends. Even cooler they have scooters and bikes available for rental through Uber, Lime and Bird app.
