Enjoy the beauty of the Waccamaw River as you stroll along the boardwalk in South Carolina's historic river town. Access to the Conway Riverwalk is available on 2nd Ave via a short concrete path, which becomes a boardwalk as the it meanders alongside the river. The other end of the Riverwalk is accessible from both Laurel St and Elm St via short concrete paths.
A hub of community activity, the Conway Riverwalk is host to numerous festivals and events throughout the year and is a popular spot for weddings. Along the walk you will find rustic wooden buildings, a playground, picnic tables, an arboretum, a boat launch and rentals, the Conway City Marina and the Riverfront Park. The Riverwalk also passes under the Waccamaw River Memorial Bridge, built in honor of Horry County war veteran in 1937.
Conway's history stretches back to the early 1700s and significant portions of its downtown are filed with the National Historic Register, including the Waccamaw River Memorial Bridge. The Conway Riverwalk itself is part of a longer historical walking trail.
The walk is ADA compliant, stroller friendly, and pets on leashes are welcome.
During periods of extremely heavy rain, flooding has occasionally rendered the path unusable.
Parking is available in a lot by the entrance on 2nd Ave and in several lots off both Laurel St and Elm St. Riverfront Park has a parking lot as well (6 Elm St).
