We wanted to visit the park to watch the rafters, but weren't allowed to take our dog into the park. We didn't stay very long. Watched rafters from the bridge long enough to get some pictures and left.

We'll have to give this area of BV a C for the current state and an A for effort... In a few years this should be the hub of BV and "the place in town to be", but for now there is not much really going on and not much to do there... We would like to see it in... More

The River park is a great place to spend the day with family. We stopped by and sat under the gazebo at picnic tables and ate lunch. The scenery was beautiful with great views of the river. The park has disc golf, playground, ball fields, hiking trails, picnic areas, river access and Clean restrooms.

The River Park is something Buena Vista should be very proud of. It's a beautiful place to walk and hike and enjoy the lovely views that surround this area.

There is an 18 hole frisbee golf course just north of the ball fields and school and west of the river. It is not easy to find, but lots of fun. Watch out for the cactus! It can poke you through tennis shoes.

We stayed close by the river park and enjoyed evening strolls in the area to watch the water sports enthusiasts. There were places to sit and enjoy the view around us which was pretty much 360 degree mountains. Buena Vista is a beautiful area and the river park enhances it.

We have been to the River Park several times in the summer months. We go in late afternoon and grab a chair and listen to the music there. We are seniors and not rafters etc so watching the kayakers is fun and interesting. We live here in this town and always take our visitors to see the River Park. They... More

the town of Buena Vista should be very proud of the river park, we have been going to the area before they stared building the park and am amazed for what they have done with the area and any thing you want to do you can do there.

Everyone we encountered on our 6 hour hike up the mountain was so friendly and no one was hesitant to talk for a few moments during their own journey. The views from some of the higher rock formations are great, you can see all of Buena Vista. Make sure to bring a LOT of water and some snacks if you... More

The River Park in BV is one of the best ideas and attractions encountered by The Gypsies in four years of travel coast to coast. Convenient parking and restrooms, with river access for boaters, swimmers and fishermen, as well as hiking and mountain bike trails that lead to picnic spots, benches, climbing and photography opportunities as incredible vistas open on...
