This is nicest in spring and fall and definitely a day time thing-don't go down here at night except in a locked car, ok? The south parking lot is pretty worn, so you might want to park in the North lot by the casino and...More

The park was somewhat under construction repair but it could have been so much nicer with better signage..... difficult to find, etc. With the history of pioneers setting off for the West from here, it should and could be a drawing point for St Joseph....More

even though the city of St Joseph is right there, it is like being in the country. Nice paths to follow and lots to look at as far as nature goes.

The trail connected to this park is awesome. But the park itself is horrible. The parking lot needs repaired and the general upkeep needs a lot of attention!

I see negative reviews but I really enjoyed myself here. The park was super clean and well managed. The paved path is perfect for a bike ride and to ride even beyond the park as there is 'more' paved roadway that's great for a ride....More

Could be a great area, neglected, ignored. There are people that may not have anywhere else to go around sometimes, I like the river view, but keep one eye on my surroundings when alone.
