Stopped to take pics of the river, and noticed this beautiful park! There is what appears to be a WPA era bandstand in the middle of the park, and large sculptures on either end. We stopped in the morning hours April 2nd, so not much going on.

This is a very nice park for a small city park, you can drive through and still get an up close look at the mighty Mississippi. It's exceptional any time of year - whether in the summer when the big steamboats are visiting or in winter when rotary lights are on. It's a must see for any visitor to the... More

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.

Riverside Park is fun almost any time of the year. In the fall the leaves are changing colors for a beautiful display. In the winter the snow and ice on the Mississippi are beautiful; there is also the light show that is put up annually. In the spring the flower gardens are beautiful. And in the summer there are always... More

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!

I spend some time at this park every other week. Beautiful view anytime of the year. Best time to visit depends on what u want to see. There is a paved walkway with a fence by the river. Very open, lots of people use it for walking & running. Alot of black squirrels always scurrying around. Large riverboats stop stay... More
