    We are here for the blues festival to see the Anna Popovic band. This area is awesome! Great vibes, nice breeze coming from the water, and super friendly people. Lots of portable toilets, and places to sit down. Perfect location for a festival. If an artist that you love will be in this area, definitely take the time to see them here at this location.

    Such a charming little place to relax and watch the river. The only downside to this yesterday was she smell of feces. Oh. My. Gosh. At times it was so strong it made me almost vomit. It ruined a fun adventure across the suspension bridge. But regardless, it was so fun to sit along side the river and watch the kids get photos taken for what we think was homecoming and then the ducks swimming. Just a smelly old town trying to keep its head above water.

    Went to Heritage Port for the 2021 Italian Heritage Festival...all I can say is "il piu excellente" which translates to "most excellent"!!! Thank you, Undo's for sponsoring and for the City of Wheeling' support!!

    Love this place early in the mornings and when the sun is going down. Good place to exercise and just relax.

    Serenity and history all in one, get lost sitting in the wooden chairs overlooking the river listening to the occasional live music. A little bit of everything rolled into one. Wonderful for stargazing as well ,my only concern is the bathrooms are not very convenient. Great for picnicking. Great place to take a nap and at night for star gazing. Keep a look out You might just see a UFO.

    I was born and raised in the Wheeling area. I used to spend many evenings at the river front. It has been years since I was in the area and it was great to sit by the river again.

    Nice area to walk along the river with beautiful views. Lots of places to sit and watch the boats. Also nice playground area for the kids.

    Took a day trip from Ohio to see what the Wheeling Witches festival was all about. Small but very interesting, we made a few purchases and walked the festival. It was a Harry Potter themed festival and very interesting.

    A beautiful well maintained park overlooking the Ohio River. The crackheads don't wake up and start meandering around until after about 3:30pm, so any time before that is good!

    This is a picturesque area right in the Ohio River. You can view the Suspension Bridge, I-70 and I-470. Even in November its amazing to See!

    More beautiful than my words can express.

    The City of Wheeling and the Heritage Port team are trying their best to have nice events and entertainment for the community. It's just too bad the homeless and local drug addicts ruin it for you. Need some type of Port Authority to monitor the area during events.

    We came in on the American Queen Countess to this quaint river town. The park is beautiful with lovely views and the community has obviously been investing in the revitalization. Unfortunately, the dog walkers in the area don't take pride in their comunity, and cleaning up after their dogs (there was about 100 landmines that needed to be navigated as we existed the boat).

    Italian Festival 2023....worth the trip downtown to rediscover the beautiful waterfront!

    Great local spot. Beautiful views of the great Ohio River, the Wheeling Suspension Bridge, Wheeling Island, and more. Kids can enjoy the well built castle playground in a safe and clean environment.

    A good place to hold a wizards and witches festival or watch fireworks. The wizards and witches festival had nice butterbeer and trinkets of all types for the Harry Potter wizarding community. So many people were dressed up in their finest robes and college outfits while there were a few monstrous and fun caricatures as well. The children ran around as they do with a scavenger hunt and wand battles. It's only 4 instead of 5 stars because the "theater" company that opened before the music came on was poor quality, even though it was ostensibly just meant for the kids. The script was farcical, the costuming seemed thrown together. I wouldn't have put them in front of anything older than fifth grade. I don't believe that the organizers vetted their performance. The primary issue is that the lead player was a cross between preening and annoying. I fully expect that the vast majority of what he said was improvised nonsense, and none of it seemed to hit. I spent most of the time trying to ignore it, while others I chatted with considered it offensive. And I refuse to believe that it was all part of character. The actor in this case chooses the act. But then when the first musical act came on, she had actually a beautiful voice, humble, kind, and grateful. I really enjoyed her songs and thought that the musical portion of the entertainment was very good. It was relaxing and made the festival feel much more real. Please in the future, more of that and none of the previous. I hope that the organizing committee takes note.

    The trail and other walking surfaces are well-maintained, and so are the seats and benches. Local passerine birds seem to like hanging around here; I got to see a good variety. The whole area seems to be wheelchair-friendly; though a bit long, there’s a ramp route down to the waterfront.

    Attended the Italian Festival held here. Nice scenic river view. Enjoyed listen to the bands playing here.

    Nice view of the bridges but didn't seem like the best area. I went there at noon on a Saturday to get photos of the area and saw a lot of homeless walking in circles talking to themselves, teenagers running around trashing the place, and one guy on he knees vomiting on the sidewalk with a bottle in his hand.... Not going back any time soon.

    I like coming here to unwind and watch the boats. Great place to watch fireworks on the Fourth of July, and for concerts. They have a lot of activities over the summer here as well.
