A nice detour for our kids. They were getting a little tired of all the museums and history, so this park was in a great downtown location and allowed them to run around for a bit. As an added bonus the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals are across the street so we added that to our afternoon as well.

We made a quick stop here and the kids hated to leave. They begged to go back for the next 2 days~ It is a very nice playground area. I wish the murals didn't block the view of the river though!

Catfish Row is a series of river wall paintings which stretch for perhaps two blocks. At the north end of this wall lies the city's Children's Art Park offering a fun time for children. A nice break if you have children in your party, but also a nice stroll even if you don't.

What a fun park! Filled with walls to run around and hide behind decorated with children's art and dotted with columns topped with steamboat smokestack designs. Also included a fountain park and wooden structures for climbing on and swinging from. Wish we'd brought the grandchildren.

great little park with excellent playground equipment and some art. The music gave it a great atmosphere. There are also lots of christmas statues at this time of year which my kids loved.

If you want to relax and watch the locals have fun this would be the place. Kids get to run under waterfountains and adults can picnic or chat under cool shade trees. Along the Yazoo riverfront and River murals are right across the street. Parking available for free.

Nice park and sitting area with well maintained playground equipment for kids to play on. There is also a splash park type area, small but a place for the kids to cool off (adults too). We sat while the kids played here waiting for fireworks on Independence Day. Nice place.

I traveled to Vicksburg for July 4th with my famlly and we drove around the river front checking out the downtown area. Really neat stuff; the city is working to improve downtown so be patient, it's worth taking a look see.

We purposefully planned our stop in Vicksburg because I saw this park. Hoped it would be a nice place for them to get some energy out from being in car all day, and cool off on the splash pad. Splash pad for whatever reason was not on. It was hot! I kept splashing the kids with water from the drinking... More

We stopped here while walking around downtown. There were many activities to keep my children busy...swings, slides, forts, etc. It was a chilly day and the splash pad was not on, but it looked like it would be fun. It was a perfect stop after looking at several museums! The downtown area was nicely laid out, and it was easy... More
