I am sure the park is a great gathering space in normal times, but during pandemic limitations it was relatively empty. It offers plenty of walking space along river with a wide open green space nearby. A bandshell was being remodeled and it looked like they have riverboat tours when things return to normal. We did enjoy the "stories" people shared of their experiences at the park via recordings you access on your phone.

This is a very beautiful park but it's very snobbish It's meant for the high-end businesses and and restaurants downtown LAX... There are no picnic tables Yogi Bear and no picnic baskets.. The big Indian is gone removed by the city due to its infinite wisdom.... If the wind's blowing from the south stay away the smell from the sewage plant is unbearable....

This is a park that stretches along the Mississippi for quite a stretch through the downtown area of La Crosse. There are many places to get a meal to go and sit in the park to eat and enjoy the views. It is quite popular and the north end gets a fair amount of traffic on the loop particularly in the evening. The park is pleasant and a great place to walk or watch the sun go down.

This park was very cool in downtown La Crosse. It is located right next to the Mississippi River and has great walking trails and an international garden. When I stopped here there was live music playing in the park grandstand. It was a really nice park and I would return again.

There is a fair amount of construction going on here during my visit. It is a nice riverwalk. Free of charge. Come here when the weather is nice. Lots of benches to dilly dally on and enjoy watching the boats, birds,etc on the Mississippi River. The La Crosse Queen offers boat rides here. There is also a small garden at the end of the park to visit as well. Lots of free parking was available the day I was here. Enjoy your visit!

Went at the end of the 2023 season. they have an international garden that represented 6 to 8 countries. we arrived as they were cleaning it up in fall, but it was still a fun and pretty visit. took about 20 to 30 minutes to walk through the gardens. we learned that the water the entire park runs beside, is a confluence (?) of three rivers.

Free parking and free entry to park.

This park is absolutely delightful for your early morning run or bike ride. You can pop over here easily if you're staying at the Charmant Hotel. There's plenty of open space and walking trails. It's big enough for a large group and pretty enough for a picnic for two! Visit the International Garden or just enjoy the Mississippi!

Absolutely loved walking the park along the Mississippi each morning while we visited the La Crosse area. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy as well. The actual riverfront area path is about 1 mile end to end. It was just over 2 miles round trip from our hotel, The GrandStay. Definitely worth checking out while you are in the area.
