Did Frisbee golf with my company and we had a blast. Very challenging course. Also there is a newer splash pad, tennis courts, and in the winter a nice sledding hill is groomed for the kids in all of us.

Nice place for little kids to play (the water spray feature is fun!) and for families to picnic (shade trees but limited number of tables), but otherwise unremarkable. Its name is accurate, as the park sits above the Mississippi, but don't expect (as least in Summer) to see the river for the trees.

Ever since early 1990's, my (entire extended) family has came up for a weekly visit at Riverside Resort. At the time, Riverside Resort was owned by Jim and Jeannette Derose and each summer I had the pleasure of spending some time with their kids. Whether it be playing basketball, volleyball, tubing, or cooking s'mores, my summers revolved around Riverside Resort.... More

If you like disc golfing you must plan a trip to Riverside park. It is a beautiful course with a lot of tree coverage, which can be an issue for some.

The park is on the opposite side of the Mississippi River from U of M St. Clloud. It has a pleasant walk area along the river, benches and porch-type swings, ducks and birds along the river, and a beautiful flower garden during the summer and fall. It's a good place to relax and for the kids to run. Some people... More

Riverside Park used to be amazing. Unfortunately, that side of town has become THE home for felon housing in the Saint Cloud area. Last time I took my six year old daughter there, i noticed numerous drug deals in the parking lot and a couple of fights broke out. Just stay away.

This is a wonderful park in St. Cloud! You have tennis courts, disc golf, a splash pad for the kiddos, a playground, climbing wall (mini version), and more! There's also a pavilion, plenty of picnic tables and trash cans, and bathrooms. Haven't had to use one, so I can't comment on the cleanliness. The park itself is beautiful. Very well... More

They have a very nice facility that holds probably 100 people give or take. Its a good location near Munsinger Gardens for pictures. Its close to St. Cloud State Univ. campus. They have a frisbee golf course (never played it, but it looks fun). They added a water park that on a hot day looks like it could be very... More
