The River Park is just south of Downtown near the newly developed "South Main" community. It includes a walking path, kayaking course, climbing course, out door living room with furniture made of mosaic tiles, and an outdoor venue featuring drinks and live music in the summer. Other attractions include a mountain biking dirt track and a pet friendly environment. If... More

We visit the area with our extended family each year and love to come into BV. We always stop at the river park so the kids can play and run around. Last Fourth of July we were lucky enough to come by in the evening when they had music and food at the park and had a great last night!

We wandered in on a Saturday when they were having a Bluegrass concert in the park. We brought our dinner and chairs, and had a wonderful time We will ABSOLUTELY be back. We... More

The park is near a planned community of homes and businesses called South Main. Some reviews here appear to me to be confusing this park with an older one in the middle of Buena Vista. Both are nice in their own way. The river park has trails for hiking and a bridge across the arkansas river. Being somewhat mobility impaired,... More

A very nice park in the middle of town. Ducks swimming and people fishing or just sitting around on park benches. Some had dogs that would jump in the water to retrieve a ball or stick. Very nice place to visit.

Between the local community schools and the river is a lovely park area full of opportunities for hiking, kayaking, fishing, and picnicking. The local community also sponsors free outdoor entertainment on weekends.

On second trip to Buena Vista, but this was my first chance to visit this Park. The Barbara Whipple trail across the river is very nicely laid out and has some interesting information about the history of the area along the way. Very nice views of the city and mountains from the trail. Moderate incline. There's also a nice, flat... More

Loved it so much we could move there :-) Enjoyed this spot several times on our visit and the free music and vendors on Saturday night was a bonus.

We've gone to this park for years to refill our camping water jugs. It's always clean and well kept with nice restrooms and lush grass. What a serene place to enjoy lunch and relax.
