We parked the car in the Albertson's lot near the river walk and walked south to Santa Rita Park. We brought a picnic lunch and sat upon the rocks near Smelter rapids watching raft boats, kayaks, and tubers float by. It was a delightful way to spend an afternoon. The walk is mostly paved and very easy to navigate.
