Quite a peaceful place to walk and enjoy nature. Great view of the Mississippi and the Port of La Crosse. The La Crosse Visitors Bureau is located at the edge of the park along with an Internation garden.

Pretty little park, right along the river in downtown La Crosse. Nice views of the river and the riverboats can be seen there.

We took a paddle boat cruise on the La Crosse Queen that docks at the Riverside Park. I was a short walk from our hotel at the Courtyard.

Great place to relax and enjoy the outdoors along the river. A few upscale restraunts on one end and a friendship garden on the other.

It’s a nice place to visit while in the La Crosse area. The garden and sculptures along the river are nice.

It's so easy to take this open piece of land for granted, but without it where would you get to sit, relax and just enjoy the Mississippi. We have been here every time we are in La Crosse and it never gets old. It's just...More
