This is a very inexpensive activity. We found a coupon that let my wife and I skate with skate rental for $7. It was not busy so you had room to move or fall! The park ranger visited frequently while we were there to keep everything safe. We combined this with some shopping at Second Street Market just down the... More

It was very chilly when we were in town so we weren't able to explore much of the park but it is so beautiful and well maintained. I can imagine how lovely it is in the summer.

love running by the river, ice skating, and strolling with friends in this safe and fun venue area. Beautifully landscaped and a wonderful vista of the city and the Miami River

We visited this month, but it was a cold day (for us, anyway). We walked along the park and viewed some of the inventions, and checked out the river as well, but nothing was open, so other than reading some of the plaques, there wasn't a lot to do. We did see the water fountain towers (not operating), and imagine... More

Great place for a walk, bike ride and ice skating. Also a good spot for festivals and fireworks. Dayton has started a good idea and needs to add food stands and some more landscaping to make this a must do!

RiverScape is a park along the Miami River, which has been cleaned up and improved greatly. Instead of an industrial "city" river, it is an escape where you can see great blue herons, ducks, geese, and fish. Walk/bike trails go along both sides. In the summer the city sponsors free concerts and food trucks park conveniently.

Over the years we have seen this area steadily improve! The ice skating they offer in the winter is the best! A beautiful arena and affordable skating for the whole family!

Nice way to handle a downtown city park area along a river. Nice for walking and just enjoying a nice day.

It's cool Dayton has done so much with their riverfront. The fountains and plantings really make this a place that is inviting. The kids love the splash fountains! We were there during the Celtic Festival, and the park was the perfect venue!
