Beautiful place to walk, jog, picnic, kayak or bike. Loved the place. The canal is a great piece of 1850 / 1870's engineering. The place is open to whatever you want to do - walk, bike, run. The canal caretaker house is impressive. Talk to the docent to learn more about the history

Nice place to walk and enjoy the breeze along the canal. You can rent bikes, kayaks, or bring your own. If you rent a kayak and go downtown, the current will be against you coming back. Seeing how the locks work is interesting and the views of the Savannah River and the Canal are lovely.

I really enjoyed the view as well as the quietness. There were many people, but the atmosphere was calm.

This is a beautiful and relaxing place to spend a summer day in Augusta. We walked both levels and enjoyed the open market and music. Be sure to check out the boat ride that departs from either end & the museum that is only a short walk away.

Spent an hour over the weekend on a walk here while in town for a wedding. Just a very nice pleasant experience. If the weathers nice it's a great way to get some exercise and and a great view

On a hot afternoon this is a pleasant walk in the trees looking at the houses and boats. Recommended

This is a lovely place for a stroll. We encounter some live music and a farmers market! That was a pleasant surprise.
