Riverscape sits parallel to the Great Miami River. Often you will see people fly fishing. There is a Interactive Fountain for kids to run through, and a snack bar to get a quick lunch or ice cream cone. This is a great spot to cool off on a hot summer day among beautiful landscape, flowering pots, and hanging baskets. There... More

Great scenery when walking along the river. Music and Fourth of July fireworks were great this year. Dayton could use more free concerts along the river

This park is stationed smack dab in the middle of downtown Dayton with the river right next to it. There are lots of festivals that take place at this location, which is perfect because there is a massive stage for performers. There are also tons of activities at Riverscape to include work out sessions that are FREE and other exciting... More

This was such a welcome addition to add interest to a possibly dying downtown area. Adding whitewater rafting will only help more. Festivals downtown are great

A park will be many different things to many different people. We elect to be in these singularly unique man-made creations for decidedly differing reasons, expectations and needs. For some, a park is a place for recreational activity and entertainment and gazing upon the human scene and parade. For others, it is a place to relax and enjoy the scenery... More

The city has spend time and money fixing up this section of downtown. They offer a variety of outdoor activities for the whole family. And offer many types of entertainment. This area is close to the baseball field and I feel very safe in this section of downtown after dark.

I love riverscape, it is a beautiful metro park that has ice skating in the winter, water fountains in spring and summer, the kids love it and are tempted to run in it and get soaking wet!!'Also has landscapes of flowers and statues. You can get ice cream and other types of food at reasonable cost. The one event I... More

I'm not into writing reviews, but I noticed a gross error in Teahan's review. There are literally miles of walking routes along the rivers out of Riverscapes. You could literally walk for days with mostly beautiful scenery - not sure what was stopping you. That being said, I would not consider this a tourist destination, but a place for locals... More

If you wonder why your taxes are so high, go take a look (but bring an air sickness bag). So much money has been spent on this fiasco that it induces vomiting. Better idea... stay away (or head to Franklin County and discover some return on your taxpayer investment).

This downtown gathering area features many activities all year long. In the warm months, there is a wide range of festivals and live entertainment. In the colder months, there is ice skating and hot chocolate. Always something going on for the entire family.
