The City of Buena Vista keeps investing in the River Park and it shows. There are ballfields, running tracks, skating area, bouldering area, dog runs, and great walking paths along the Arkansas river, with a footbridge and another one coming, hopefully soon.

It's a very well kept and beautiful park. It has amazing views with gorgeous overlooks of the Arkansas river. It's a great place to take a little break... let the kids run around.... walk your dog... or just take a little break.

I liked the challenging boulder park and the hiking trail. Very nice and beautiful place. It is a great place to take in the river and watch kayakers do tricks.

There's a bench seat next to the bridge over the Arkansas River and it's an ideal spot to watch kayakers and rafters playing in the rapids below a low waterfall.

Perfect combination of utilizing the GORGEOUS river & adding some great 'manmade elements'. The trails are great, benches for sitting and watching the play boats are super and the surrounding mountains - well - stunning!

Very pretty, short, easy trail on the west side of the Arkansas River just across from BV. You cross over a pedestrian bridge where you can watch kayakers practice in the river. You can then follow the trail along the river before heading up the hill to make a couple of loops. From the top, you can see all of... More

We were just driving around and ran into this area of town. Loved being close to the river. Great walking and hiking, There is a disc golf course as well. Some easy bouldering for the beginners. A couple of cute shops and restaurants nearby. Very neat and well cared for.

A very nice park, even if you aren't a kayaker. There is a running path, some hiking trails, a bike park, skate park, tennis courts, basketball courts, some bouldering rocks (with holds) and free wifi! What a great place this would be to live. I would spend every evening in this wonderful multipurpose park.
