Cumberland Riverwalk at McGregor Park

The McGregor Park is home to the internationally acclaimed Cumberland Riverwalk, the signature of the Queen City. For almost a mile in downtown Clarksville, Cumberland Riverwalk stretches along the picturesque east bank of the Cumberland River. The concrete walkway is stylish and well-designed with bricks and other ornamentation as accents, and lights line the path allowing for walking in the dark. The trail is open except for a line of eastern cottonwoods between the Riverwalk and riverside drive. At the south end of the Riverwalk stands a Bronze statue of one of the greatest Olympic athletes in America, Wilma Rudolph.
