Pueblo Riverwalk was a great escape for us during our day long visit to Pueblo while in southeastern Colorado. It was a hot summer day with the temperature spiking close to 100 and we had already visited their zoo in the morning and airplane museum around noon. When we thought a stroll along the Riverwalk would be a good way to cap our visit to Pueblo. The Historic Arkansas Riverwalk of Pueblo is a 32 acre urban park area with paved walking area, canal boat rides, artwork, a few restaurants, and community events.

While we did not get the full experience of the Riverwalk because we had to head out because we were staying the night in a different city, but we did get to walk down a ways and enjoyed water, art, and just walking around near the fountains and statues. While not as developed as the other riverwalk areas that we have been to, personally I enjoyed the one in Pueblo just as much as San Antonio or Oklahoma City. I like wide open spaces and crowded streets, shopping, and fine dining is not my favorite things to do list so I really enjoyed the Pueblo Riverwalk. However, if you are expecting a San Antonio Riverwalk experience you will be disappointed.
On our particular visit it was not crowded, a few people here and there walking around, some children on the paddle boats, one group of people taking the canal boat ride the despite the heat we enjoyed our lovely little stroll. We found the area very clean and parking was easy to get in and out of which is always a plus for us. Our 2 year daughter enjoyed watching the fountains and walking by the flower beds. She also has a thing for tunnels and loved going under the bridges and hearing the live music that was playing.
My family enjoyed it and as a whole we thought the Pueblo Riverwalk just seemed cleaner and more family friendly than the others we have been to. All-in-all the Pueblo Riverwalk was a great place for us to take our 2 year old daughter out for a walk.
