A relatively new playground has been installed at Riverside Park. Also a great area for family picnics. During the summer months there are numerous concerts in the park. A truly fun place along the Arkansas River.

In late June the FIBARK Festival is held in Salida. The city sponsors really great bands who play live at Riverside Park. Admission is free and the atmosphere is great.

I took my grand kids to this park and they had a great time climbing on the rocks and getting their feet wet in the water. The park was clean and the kids park was modern and safe. Loved the people in this community.

The river runs along the park. There are 4 or 5 places where the river drops and creates some whitewater. You can wade and swim in the calm water. The children will want to have life jackets if they want to float through the... More
