Joined many people for jazz at Riverscape. Wonderful venue! Beautiful views of the river, and such a beautifully landscaped location.

The fountains, greenery and activity here is just rite. Fun for kids of all ages. Nice to relax in the swings to river watch. Parking can be tricky but not that bad depending on when you go. This is really a nice touch to the downtown area and well worth a visit.
