I can't say there was anything special about the park but it is very pretty. You can walk along the Mississippi and there's an international garden that's pretty. If you are in La Crosse you should stop by the park and take a walk.

There are gardens, benches overlooking the Mississippi, a fountain, a canon, sculpture, and lots of lovely grass and trees. There is often entertainment on summer evenings and it is all free.

This is a nice park stretching along the east side of the river. Good boat watching and people watching. Easy walk from the downtown area and lots of hotels and restaurants in the area. Neat chance to get close to the barges and get a sense of what the river means to the area and it's history. Would recommend it... More

Every time we are in Lacrosse we go to Riverside Park. Love to walk around and just take in the view. Went there on a Sunday eve after we had dinner and people were just sitting around playing guitars and very peaceful. Envy the people who have this at they're disposal all the time!!

We stayed at the Radisson Hotel downtown and walked out the front door right into the park. It was a beautiful way to end the day. We strolled the rivers edge and sat and listened to some music that a gentleman was playing on his guitar just a few benches down from us. A well maintained and a wonderful addition... More
