City of Alpena Heritage Riverwalk

City of Alpena Heritage Riverwalk

This historically-oriented walking tour along the Thunder Bay River in downtown Alpena begins at South Riverfront Park (behind the Armory on Water Street), following the river north, crossing over the Ninth Avenue Bridge, then following the river south and ending at South Riverfront Park. The walk includes newly constructed boardwalk as well as integrating a portion of the city’s 13.5 mile Bi-Path. The overall objective of the River Walk is to demonstrate the importance of Lake Huron and the Thunder Bay River in the development of Alpena and its unique maritime culture. The River Walk is being developed in stages, but a good portion of the walk has been laid out and is worthy of a stroll. After visiting South Riverfront Park, where new interpretive signs have been installed, cross Second Avenue to connect with the existing Bi-Path. Follow to Island Mill Park and LaMarre Park, ending at Water Tower Park after crossing the Ninth Avenue Bridge. Continue to North Riverfront park down Oldfield to Pine to Fletcher Street, passing the Great Lakes Maritime Heritage Center and the Fletcher Street Brewing Company. Cross Second Avenue to North Riverfront Park. You will be across the river from where you began. Walk across the Second Avenue Bridge to return.
