My, husband and I always enjoy going to this park with our Dog Grizzy. I find it relaxing at times. I enjoy looking out over the St. John's River. If your lucky you might see a dolphin out there.

We've been to Memorial Park numerous time and always had a great experience. We recently brought a picnic lunch (there are numerous trash cans scattered throughout the park) and a small portable battery operated tv to sit and watch the football game. We ended up being so delightfully distracted by the playful squirrels in the park that we hardly watched... More

This is a nice little place to walk around and look out over the water. There are some pretty cool statutes and a little walking track of sorts around it. It's relaxing.

A nice park for a stroll or sit on the benches to gaze into the river, although the water is brown. The trees with Spanish moss is nice to look at though. It's close to some of the fast food and regular restaurants though, so it would be nice to bring lunch there on a nice day.

Recipe for a perfect first date: Bring a picnic lunch, blanket and sunscreen and sit directly in the center of the park. Enjoy your lunch, drink plenty of water (or your beverage of choice.) Then lay back and take in the amazing view of the sky and tranquil environment. Then stroll around the surrounding nature trail and make your way... More

We loved strolling through here and took many, many pictures. It is a short walk from the Riverdale Inn where we stayed. It was always my first walk in the morning...with my first cup of coffee.

Memorial park is a small but pretty park on the river in Riverside. It has a large lawn that is good for picnics and throwing around a frisbee. Plenty of nice shady oak trees for hot days. A nice quiet spot near downtown.

Great park to take an early Saturday stroll, and then eat at one of the many restaurants that surrond this beautiful park.
