Nice walk along the river and enjoy the Riverwalk Park. We just sat by the river and enjoying watching and hearing the river go by.

What a lovely park. I didn’t mind paying the extra tax to have such a wonderful park to visit. The city really did a good job with this area of town.

People were all enjoying themselves, the weather was splendid. We didn't get in the water, but lots of kids were enjoying themselves. I'd skip renting the tubes and just float myself. There are plenty of easy places to get in and out.

We visited on a hot day in the summer. The river was reportedly flowing low and the river was fantastic. We spent the whole day just hanging on the rocks. My 11 year old son got a huge kick out of jumping into the river,...More

This park has a nice pastoral setting right in town. The river makes for a fine companion, as do the trees and views. We always chill here after a big mountain bike ride in the nearby hills.

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
