LOCATED ALONG THE BANKS OF THE MANISTEE RIVER IN DOWNTOWN MANISTEE
SOUTH RIVERWALK :
Fully accessible, the Manistee Riverwalk follows the Manistee River as it flows through the heart of downtown. The South Riverwalk stretches 1.75 miles from the mouth of the Manistee River at Lake Michigan east to Manistee Lake. It passes under two bridges and provides easy access to shopping all up and down Manistee’s River Street. While walking keep an eye out for lake freighters plying the river and delivering supplies to industries upstream. It is an awe-inspiring sight.
NORTH RIVERWALK :
The North Riverwalk was constructed in 1983. There is a universally accessible boardwalk with benches and fishing decks along the riverbank as well as shrubs, trees and grassy sloped areas ending at a gazebo constructed by the Manistee Jaycees. Roots on the River summer concerts are held weekly at the par featuring an eclectic line up of talented Midwest music groups.
