We have read a lot of negative reviews about this place like Ghost Town, people getting arrested, homeless people but we did not experience any of this. We are a family with 2 young kids (5 and 1), grandpa & grandma and it was a really nice walk along the river and we saw a lot of wildlife like iguanas, crabs, fish etc., very nice boat and very friendly people so for that aspect it was real nice. We agree that a lot of places are closed but the few that are open like Briny's Irish Pub, are rocking it with their food and $5 - 20oz beers. I would recommend it to anyone! It's a real nice place to walk but if you are looking for shopping you should defintly go to the mall instead.

It was a short walking (approx10 min) from our hotel (Hamption Inn situated in the business district.
Several older nice and historic buildings, of the the pleasure boats, some restaurants bars and a few shops, lively even on sunday and in the evening

Other than a nice serene walk along the river, this place is empty and a little bit sketchy. We saw someone getting arrested while we were there. I don't know why TripAdvisor includes this on its list of things to do in Fort Lauderdale.

We enjoyed a beautiful afternoon here but it is obvious that the economy has hit this area in a bad way. As the reviewers have mentioned, so many closed business and "for lease" signs. It is a shame because watching the boats come through is a real treat. Pets are allowed and one of the funniest sights was a guy on roller blades walking a large pit bull. Or maybe the pit bull was walking him! I am not sure what the answer is as far as revitalizing the area but it does seem a shame to not utilize such a great resource. Plenty of paid parking nearby.

Niceish walk along the river - easy path, nice stroll, but nothing really to see. The kids enjoyed seeing the bridges open to let the boats through! There used to be a nice center with restaurants, bars, entertainment, but that's now totally done.
