We spent a whole Saturday afternoon at this park. It's a beautiful setting in the middle of the city, complete with waterfalls, a cable car ride over the waterfalls, an old style carousel, a small amusement park, and many lovely walking trails to explore the park.

Riverfront park is smack in the middle of anything and everything. Easy to get around with wide paved paths. Beautiful scenery, and smack up against local attractions!

The park is very nice. It is a clean park. The bell tower and falls are worth seeing. I also visited the shopping mall. It is worth the trip.
