The River Walk viewing Pier is so relaxing. We have observed Ducks, Seagulls, Cranes, and large fish jumping from the deep depths of the river. When visiting DePere, bring your camera, binoculars and a beverage and enjoy Nature in a wonderful scenic area.

This is an easy and nice spot to spend a bit of time enjoying the views of the Fox River and the ever changing wildlife. It is handicap accessible and makes a nice "Push" for the wheelchair bound.

Very lovely river walk area in De Pere. Overlook does have a view of a paper factory but the pelicans and fishing boats make up for that. Great for families and you can stop and get ice cream!!
