I love the Riverwalk--It is well set up, well maintained and very relaxing (and you can also bring a dog which is a plus)

My husband and I walked along the river. So very peaceful. We saw squirrels, cardinals and people floating down the river on tubes. Well maintained and an easy walk.

My friend and I were in town for training, and stumbled across this park while searching for dinner options. It was a beautiful walk after a long drive. I wish we would have had more time for a longer walk to see more.

This is a nice area to walk along the river. Also connected or very close to town for some shopping or looking around. I wouldnt swim here as when I've been here the current is pretty stong.

Very pleasant to stroll along the river with some historic signs along the way. There had been recent rain so the river flowed fast. Many banches interspersed if wanting to rest. Saw many couples & families strolling or biking also.

Relaxing walk or bike along the Muskegon River. Plenty of benches to take a break. Places to picnic (some covered), play some tennis or softball. Newer bathrooms too! Overall nice place for a break.

The Big Rapids River walk is a tranquill serene stroll winding it's way along the Muskegon River. You pass Hikers, couples, bicyclists, Fishermen fishing from the many out posts along the river. The main section of the walk goes from Hemlock park to North end...More
