This park is amazing! We were the on a beautiful snowy day! It's crazy that you're basically right on town but a few feet down the trail you feel like you're far in the country! The river views are fabulous!

This park was really accessible, and had a lot of nature to see. We were there in late October, and was able to see a lot of salmon that came back to this area. Very easy walking and have access to the river bed.

My wife and I enjoyed a couple of afternoon walks through this nice river front park. The town of Leavenworth does a great job of maintaining the park and the trail. Hearing the sound of the river going by was very pleasing also.
