We decided to check out downtown Mishawaka and were really happy to find Central Park next to the Riverwalk. A wonderful playground with water features and lots of children and adults having a great time. Definitely worth a visit.

I absolutely love this park. It is so nice and so much for the kids to do. We rented a pavilion for our sons birthday. It turned out great. However, I think the price should be cheaper.

Splash pad and playgrounds were so entertaining the younger ones begged to stay. Older ones found shade beneath an unreserved pavilion. Good 2 hours of healthy family activity.

This park has activities for everyone. It was rebuilt a few years ago, and it's got something for everyone.

Visited this park a few weeks ago with one young child. The good things are the playground equipment and the water area. There are several shelters and a basketball court. Probably other things we didn’t visit. Too bad there is no shade near the playground...More

The entire pavilions are for advanced rent If rented they should have a sign posted If not posted and some family has taken it over, ask them to clear a table for you If not nice look for CAP patrol in yellow shirts
