Sinnissippi Park is a great location to bring your family talk a walk along the river, admire the beautiful foliage, feed the ducks or swans or just sit around and people watch.

Sinnissipppi Park is a wonderful place to visit thanks to our fantastic park district. Great golf course. Excellent variety of free concerts in the summer and wonderful ice sculptures in the winter! Do not miss out on picnick opportunities, either. Clean restrooms.

Great park to go running. They have a well maintained park right by the river so you can have a scenic tour while putting in the miles. Not the longest path, but it's still a nice place to see.

We were staying at an AirBNB location and this park was only a half mile away. What a pleasure and delight. Went for a run 2 mornings and it couldn't have been better. Amazing light sculptures to see at night.
