The River is beautiful

This is a great park. Lots of places to sit and admire the Mississippi River as it rolls right past you.

Nestled on the bank of the Mississippi, the park is a great, safe place to walk or to sight see. Band concerts occur in the band shell.

Riverside is an incredible place to relax on a bench with riverside view of the Mississippi, or an enjoyable place to go with friends for some frisbee. Plenty of fountains and pathways to meander through by yourself or with others. Day and night, spectacular environment.

If you want to relax by the river in Lacrosse, Wisconsin, this is a great place to go. There are benches by the river and you can watch birds, people on the river, and just enjoy the park. It is not huge, but there are plenty of places to sit and just relax. Very nice park!

The view of the river is beautiful and endlessly interesting because of the traffic on the river. The river walkway is a lovely way to stroll through downtown LaCrosse and is dotted with ample benches, a few fountains and plantings. A great stroll.

Easy access from hotel. Great river viewing. Clean, Friendly, Great for my early morning coffee walks. Plenty of seating to just sit and watch the river flow by. If you are lucky a few eagles will show up.
