Nice scenery here. I always love watching the river and looking at the flood lines! The path along the river is probably the most scenic thing in Grand forks so it's worth it if you're in town! :)

We were on the bike trip around the paved trail that goes around the two cities. This monument is on the bike trail right by downtown. It's hard to imagine the river that high. it was a fun stop.

This monument was placed to show anybody in Grand Forks how high the floods were in Grand Forks. This monument is already built high above the river next to it so you can really see the levels. Other than that there is not much else to see. Its right by the Minnesota border so you can cross if youd like.

It is in a very nice park on the river front and gives you an idea of how bad the flooding was at the time. Went to the brewery they actually have photos hanging on the wall showing the devastation first hand.

Interesting destination place. Not only do you get a very vivid visual clue as to how bad the 1997 flood was, you are right by the Red River, the only river that flows North toward Canada. The bridge right by the flood memorial monument is also the portal between Minnesota and North Dakota. On the North Dakota side we attended... More

The flood memorial monument itself is a great physical way to realise just how devastating the 1997 flood was; but the real highlight is the entire downtown greenway system of walking and biking trails. It's wonderful to see a riverside that's been left for pedestrians and cyclists without any construction (of course, who'd want to build that close when you... More

This is the best "hiking" to be found in Grand Forks, and well worth the walk along this Greenway. Try to find a bike and this would be greater yet!

What an iconic way to measure part of the history of the Red River associated with Grand Forks and East Grand Forks, this marker serves as a reminder of the years of great flooding, showing the actual levels the river got in respective years culminating with the Flood of 1997.

We went for a little walk before dinner downtown and we found ourselves at the Flood Memorial Monument. We are so glad that we did. We took lots of pictures. This is very well done, not just the Monument, but the park and the trail. We had no idea that Grand Forks was this progressive. We had a wonderful walk.... More
