Very well kept path along the river with information about the landing and stay there of the Lewis and Clark expedition. So relaxing to take a walk there and have beautiful views of the river and the wildlife.

There are 5 plaques that honor veterans. The history of this landing spot on the river goes back to Lewis & Clark. I can see why they stopped there, it was easy to get in and out of the river.

We rode through with our motorcycles on a beautiful day. This spot has great access to the water. There was a band playing. We could have joined in and stayed for hours.

Having been away for years, it was a wonderful surprise when I returned to see what Atchison had done to the river front area. Although in a flood zone, the park and most of the riverfront are above the 'typical' flood levels. In the summer,...More

Beautiful, but too much vehicle noise. The vehicles are a big downer when trying to get some peace & quiet. Nice park to relax with family and alone. Playground for kids. Bathrooms. Nice restaurant.

Yes, there is. A small one in the part that I believe is called Independence Park. It’s a nice little shaded area. The kids had a blast as did the man and dog passing through! I wasn’t familiar with how these things work... More
