Nice park

Nice park along the Mississippi with trails. In the summer they have music in the park. There is plenty of green space.

Very pretty park. While it's not a destination, it is something to include if you are in the area just to take a break and enjoy the river.

Riverside Park was a great rest stop while getting information at the visitors bureau, which is located in the park. There is even a oriental garden just outside of the visitors bureau to enjoy for free. This was a relaxing area to plan our stay in La Crosse.

Perfect for watching the river and getting some fresh air! The memorials featured in the park are spectacular, and the La Crosse City Band plays every Wednesday for free, which makes the experience even more enjoyable. It's in walking distance from the Friendship Gardens and is an overall beautiful park.

Wonderful view of the Mississippi River. Great place for spending a lazy afternoon. There are places to eat and drink. The landscaping is very well taken care of. If you are lucky you will see a barge pass through!

This is a beautiful urban park, on the banks of the Mississippi. Very clean & devoid of pan handlers & homeless. Definitely a place reserved for ladies & gentlemen. We found it easy to find with plenty of parking.

This part of the Riverfront in LaCrosse is so pretty. The city has revamped the area and attracted some amazing restaurants and hotels. Lots of things still in the making on the way. It is a beautiful walk and the river is just stunning. There are the two bridges that cross from WI to MN. You can turn your back... More

Visited from Denver and walked along the banks with family and friends. Parking can be a bit hard to find but worth finding a spot and checking it out.

When you visit La Crosse or the La Crosse area this park is an absolute must-see. From the park you can see the Mississippi river, the Black river, and the La Crosse river.
