“Beerfest Weekend”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

Went to the river front on a whim, and I was pleasantly surprised by the improvements there. The amphitheater is a great venue, and it is attracting some bigger name bands. The events are starting to attract more people. There is a new bar there called the Sandbar. It's a neat theme bar with sand out in front and a beach feel.

The beerfest was nearly over at about 5 pm, but the bands played until midnight. Great job on this place so far, Montgomery.

“Riverfront Park”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

The walking about the park and reading the plaques made for an interesting tour. The river was beautiful and the crowds were pleasant and security was present.

“Fun place to bring the family on the weekend”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

The views here are beautiful and the splash pad for the kiddos is great on a summer day! There is nice unbrella coverd tables for a shaded area for mom and dad and is a perfect picnic spot overlooking the river with great views of the boat.

“Family fun & Sun”
Reviewed 7 May 2013 via mobile

We recently visited the downtown Riverfront to experience their Spring '2nd Saturday' event.
The parking downtown was free, the walk was short, and before you know it You are walking along the rivers edge.
This event happens every month & our particular visit featured a vintage car show (some very 'sick' or 'sweet' rides) depending on your generational level! Ha
There were food vendors scattered; including CHIK Fil A & the famous cow.
There is an amphitheater right along the river bank and live music accompanied a delightful late afternoon/ early evening.
We took photos in front of the Riverboat Parked & waiting patiently as passengers boarded for an evening cruise down the river @ dusk.
That will surely be Our next venture!
It's a wonderful oppOrtunity to spend family time, saunter & laugh while taking in the sights and sounds.
I was super impressed & pleasantly surprised by the high visibility & friendliness of the Montgomery police force.
Check it out this year..you'll be glad you took the time to enjoy the 'view' next to the Old Train Station!

“Great safe place to hike or just take in the nightlife”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

People were everywhere on a late Friday night laughing, cutting up, and having a wonderful time. I was nervous at first being along walking my dog at night by the downtown dark riverside but come to find out, it wasn't dark or frightening at all. Lots of nice people out enjoying themselves at one of the outdoor music bars or just sitting by the dockside watching boats whizz by. What a lively and fun place to get out, stretch your legs, or strut your stuff!
