We enjoyed the wildlife...mama swan with her five babies and River otters playing. The River where we were was so peaceful.

Quiet, peaceful and relaxing! Great river to drift down, by raft, kayak, drift boat, etc. Wonder large trout to catch for dinner or catch and release. World renowned trophy fishing!

The Sac River Trails are awesome. The mostly paved trails wind along or near the Sacramento River, but ALL of Redding has been overrun with homeless & criminal transients.

If it wasn't for the river Redding would be just another place to stop along I-5. During the summer even the locals utilize the numerous spots along the river to cool off and enjoy a picnic. Wouldn't recommend swimming though, that sucker is COLD.

The Sacramento River is the heart of Redding. It flows through the middle of the city and provides recreation all year round. Great boating, fishing and scenic views.

You will definitely enjoy a trip around the Sacramento River. There are too many attractions: Shasta dam is an amazing construction; Sundial Bridge at Turtle Bay is one of the cutest and most beautiful bridges you have ever seen; a boat cruise is a wonderful sightseeing option; a snowshoe tours at Lassen National Park nearby will add more fun for...

Best river park I have visited. Especially for a small town. Walking, running, biking, picnicing or merely watching the river, it has it all. With a CA license, fishing too! Great kid's playground areas. Plenty of parking, but no RV parking.

Great place to go for a walk, fishing, or play at various parks along the river's edge. We enjoy visiting Anderson River Park.
