Riverside Park is a beautiful little park on the banks of the Mississippi River. The park is full of people young and old. The park stretches fairly long and has plenty of benches and open areas. The side includes a small Asian garden.

Lots of room to relax, listen to free concerts and attend seasonal festivals. While watching boats and people go by on a spring, summer, or fall day. International gardens there are a must to walk through also. City trolleys will take you from here on historic city tours.

Enjoyed watching the Rotary Lights parade before they turned on all the beautiful lights all around Riverside Park! Walking through the park at night and seeing all the lights sparkle on the river is so beautiful. Dress WARM> You can always stay in your car and drive around the park, but I suggest walking!
