Right now the "riverwalk" is fragmented and there are a a public access ways and a couple of public parks along the northern bank of the Miami River. This is the downtown segment located behind the Hyatt, which is about 1/8 of a mile in length. Most of the downtown parcels fronting the river have new buildings planned, and the code requires the developer provide public access to the river. Eventually the Riverwalk will join a "baywalk" that will extend from Bicentennial Park to the mouth of the river and continue as the riverwalk. The river is also being dredged and deepened, since it also happens to serve as Florida's fifth largest port.

^I'm so glad they're making these developers build public access. I was so surprised that nobody took advantage of the river like that. Hopefully the Brickell side will have a nice Riverwalk too.

I agree... the requirement has been there since the 70s but since there haven't been that many new developments along the river, it hasn't been used. Now there are a bunch of new developments either approved or already under construction east of I-95, One Miami, the Dupont towers (replacing the demolished Dupont Plaza), and Wind and Ivy on the north bank (downtown). With these we will begin to see an even greater Riverwalk.

The Brickell side will be just as exciting, because the historic Miami Circle is on the southern bank of the river and may become a state park of sorts, and the riverwalk will extend from there to points west.

Brickell has even more projects. The Sheraton Biscayne Bay is to be torn down to make way for ICON Brickell, then there's Brickell on the River almost finished (with a second tower coming soon), NeoVertika, Latitude on the River, and several others.

It's saddening to think that the early settlers mistreated this river and didn't see its value. In its early days it was used as a sewer, and instead of placing buildings that could take advantage of the views, the buildings faced away from the river and instead parking lots were placed along the banks.
