the river is always going have its natural beauty but it stops at the bank . The park itself has an abandoned look with trash littering the the bank and old park features from 1976 bicentennial that look like they mite be waiting on the tricentennial celebration for future generations to dig up and ask what was this place ....

We bring our daughters here every once in a while if we're in the neighborhood. Where the playground is the path & picnic tables are always covered in duck poop, so I wouldn't recommend eating here. The playground equipment is a little outdated. They're definitely better parks in the area.

This park has a nice view of the river, but there are extremely questionable people lurking around. There have been prostitution arrests in the past. I would not go there alone or near dark.

Nice walking path or softball fields if you play within the league. There is also a swinging bridge. Nice river to fish but other than that, it doesn't off much. There is no playground for small children or much for them to do besides feed geese/ducks. There are signs posted asking you not to do this but people do it... More

Beautiful park especially for photos and family time. We also went to Domtar Park for a baseball tournament and it is a great sports facility. Too Bad the tournament got rained out!

We used to love coming here, but now there are so many unsavory things that go on here that we just don't go.If you have children I would not deem this a safe area.

Its hard to write a fair review of Riverfront Park. One would want to write a nice review, but the others before me pretty much hit the nail on the head. The word nasty pretty much decribes this park and it really is nothing special. On a positive side, those who walk the green belt, pass right through it on... More

Greenbelt is accessible at this location and Netherland Inn there too. Very small playground meant for pre-schoolers. Small picnic area. Cross walking bridge to Cherokee Island for fun of exploring that area on foot.

Not many towns offer a scenic walking path along a river front with history and bathroom facilities.
