Easy walking trails for the elderly, young or athletic. Leads to other trails for more challenge or just good to find a bench and listen to the river roll by.

I couldn't get enough of this place. We were staying nearby and I came down to the river to just be in nature and read a book while listening to the river. They've actually made some "pools" in the river for paddle boarding, kayaking, and even surfing. I was fascinated to watch the adventures and wished I'd brought a life... More

This park is beautiful and well maintained. They have bouldering rocks (manufactured) which my sons thought was pretty ironic when looking around at all the natural rocks all around. It was very picturesque with walkways along the river. It was a great spot for taking photos of the mountains and river.

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.
