“A nice park with potential”

Buena Vista River Park
Ranked #10 of 32 things to do in Buena Vista
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed September 2, 2013

The park is near a planned community of homes and businesses called South Main. Some reviews here appear to me to be confusing this park with an older one in the middle of Buena Vista. Both are nice in their own way.
The river park has trails for hiking and a bridge across the arkansas river. Being somewhat mobility impaired, it was difficult for us to get to all the locations that were available but still, this park is nice and appears to have potential to be a main point for visitors to Buena Vista. It is worth a visit - and don't miss the small shops in the South Main area as you make your way to the park..

A very nice park in the middle of town. Ducks swimming and people fishing or just sitting around on park benches. Some had dogs that would jump in the water to retrieve a ball or stick. Very nice place to visit.

Between the local community schools and the river is a lovely park area full of opportunities for hiking, kayaking, fishing, and picnicking. The local community also sponsors free outdoor entertainment on weekends.

On second trip to Buena Vista, but this was my first chance to visit this Park. The Barbara Whipple trail across the river is very nicely laid out and has some interesting information about the history of the area along the way. Very nice views of the city and mountains from the trail. Moderate incline. There's also a nice, flat trail along the river on the town side.

Loved it so much we could move there :-) Enjoyed this spot several times on our visit and the free music and vendors on Saturday night was a bonus.
