The Historic Arkansas Riverwalk is a riverwalk in the US city of Pueblo, Colorado, along the Arkansas River. The riverwalk was constructed as part of an effort to attract tourists and trade to the city.[1] Its construction was inspired by the San Antonio Riverwalk in the city of San Antonio, Texas.[1]

Pueblo was founded near the confluence of Fountain Creek and the Arkansas River. After a flood in 1921, the river was diverted to Pueblo Reservoir. The original riverbed was excavated as part of an urban renewal project, and the river was again rerouted.[1]
