Great place for a shower. The outdoor environment was beautiful for the shower. Think about it for your event.

I drove to the top of this bluff not knowing what to expect. Little did I know there is a spacious park at the top, as well as this viewing area which covered the downtown and river areas. Very nice place to visit.

Stunning views from the top of this bluff overlooking the Mississippi River and the surrounding valleys. Capture a sunset pic from a scenic overlook, share a picnic at a limestone table with limestone benches, play disc golf or explore the trails for hiking and mountain biking.

The drive through Memorial Park is beautiful, and while not all the leaves were on the trees, there were still enough to make it a wonderful fall drive. Sorin's Bluff has picture perfect views of downtown with the river in the background. And there are plenty of places before and after to get out and explore. This would be a... More

A great free attraction when visiting Red Wing. There are lovely views and the setting is great. Easy to drive the car up to this and not have to walk excessively if you cannot hike, but want to see the bluff. A great place to take adults and children. Great place for photos. Clean and attractive.

Beautiful views of the valley. Watched a storm come in. There are a couple of viewing spots. Picnic tables at the lower one.

The ride up the Bluff was great and reminded me a bit of driving in San Fransisco. The sights were beautiful as they should be. What I was surprised by was that they had several limestone(?) picnic tables with great views. I would come back here for a picnic with the family

If you are just coming to town for the day, it is a quick drive up into the park to take in the view of the Mississippi River and bluffs. The city has added some wonderful picnic areas, shelters and fire circles. The 9 hole disc golf is played two directions for a total of 18 holes. Lots of hiking... More

There is a nice view from the park area, but I had hoped to see more of the river from our vantage point. It is worth the trip up the winding road, but I would not do it again.
