It does not take long and is a nice short stroll along the water with several informational boards telling the history of Coos Bay and why it is named Coos. There are also a few boats on display, lot is covered so even if there is a little rain you are protected

We took a stroll after dinner one evening. The boardwalk is relatively short but a nice place to see the boats and be close to the water.

All it is is a boardwalk that needs some cleaning up. It used to have lights that lit up certain areas in the pavilion to point out cities but all the lights are burnt out. Not a lot to look at.

There's a covered pavilion if its raining. Informative and interesting maps and local information is available. The Tourist Office is just across the street.

Small boardwalk compared to say Atlantic City but this is Coos Bay and very well done it is. I love the wooden milled floor map and the different type of woods grown in the area shown at one of the covered areas. The photo historical plaques are very simple but really informative. Who knew there was coal mining out here?... More

A nice improvement by the city off Hwy 101 at the foot of the downtown of Coos Bay. Good historical ship to the bay.

Booked a hotel nearby partially due to the cool sounding boardwalk being across the street. I was surprised to see no shops, restaurants or vendors of any kind. A few pictures describing the history of the waterfront, an old boat and a few homeless people were all the attractions there. A great time was Not had by all.

We enjoyed taking the dog here from our hotel and seeing all the boats and water activities. Very friendly people along the walk with kayaking and paddle boards. Lots to see and do.

The board walk is part of a large upgrade to go for 5 miles. It offers a wonderful walk as is, and a great place to take guests to the area.
