Great Mississippi River Overlook

Very relaxing park overlooking the Mississsippi. In a Lille more than hour, we saw three barges and met another visiting couple with whom we had a great conversation

Beautiful day, great breeze. We watched the barges for a bit and walked around. Nice day to take in the sites. A part of the path was under construction so we just turned around.

A great place to watch sunset. A nice view of the river and the bridge over it. A nice all weather walking trail along the bluff. an old rail road depot that's being restored. Plenty of off street parking also.

What a nice spot to walk to and around in Natchez. A beautiful view over the Mississippi River and points west. There are stairs or fairly steep drive down to the under-the hill area (and Casinos) that are also worth the hike. The trail at the bottom of the bluff had nature type points of interest signs along the way.

Nice area to walk and have a good view of the Mississippi River and surrounding area. Lovely green space with gazebos, the old rail station and memorials.

We were the only ones at the gazebo for sunset and I must say it was one of the most breathtaking sunsets I have ever seen!

Trails on the park and below with lots of informational placards of the history of the town. It stretches a long way along the waterfront with benches and now in December, Christmas decorations.

Great view of THE River, great for watching the annual hot air balloon race of fourth of July fireworks. Nice walkway along the bluff, antebellum homes overlook the river and nice picnic area

We did not spend too much time here, but I should say that the area we saw was very nice. Very nice views of the river and it is fun to watch the barges and boats go by. The walkway was nice and the area was clean. A bit hot in the summer if you are there in the middle... More
