Great time to see anytime of year. Feed the ducks, play frisbee, bask in the sun, walk along the Mississippi, see the rotary lights at Christmas time.

We enjoyed the beautiful Christmas light show. Amazing how many displays and lights. Great job! There are also horse drawn carriage rides that you can ride through the display. We preferred to walk - which allowed us to enjoy each display. Wonderful night with friends!

I have never seen so many lights. It really was a Winter Wonderland. My daughter and I walked it, but you can drive it. It is simply amazing!

Beautiful Christmas decorations. Such a festive look and feel. Everyone should take a food item to donate and go Down and enjoy it all. The live reindeer will be a hit with all.

I really appreciate the fact the city has made such a beautiful park on the river. It is always busy with people doing all sorts of things from watching the boat traffic to walking the pathways to playing Frisbee on the grass. And the fantastic light show at Christmas time if second to none!

I have always liked the park-they have really done a superb job of upgrading it. I used to go to the National Fish Controls Lab., before it moved. The International Peace Garden is beautiful. I am adding a few pictures of the blazing hills along the Mississippi and on the apple orchard trail in LaCrescent.In addition to the fall colors,... More
