“A Beautiful Enhancement for Sinnissippi Park”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

I often walk around the river in Sinnissippi Park but now I can take the time to smell the flowers with the new Nicholas Conservatory. The facility is beautiful and the grounds are very inviting. There is a pavilion outside of the building where you can sit and chat with friends or strangers. It is very relaxing.It is open Tuesday-Saturday and is a wonderful place to introduce children to the beauty of flowers and their many varieties. What a wonderful addition to the beauty of the park.

“Great recreation”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

I walk on the path here often, and now with Nicholas conservatory in the park and the boat dock, it will only get better. The path connects to Martin Park in Loves Park. There are many racing and walking events held here, plus the snow sculpture competition in January and the light festival at Christmas

“Love the Snow Sculpting competition!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

A great place for a competition involving creativity with snow. Fun to see what other people envision and turn into reality.

“One of the more beautiful places in Rockford”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

If you want something free to do, you will find it at Mississippi park. It's very cool in the winter when you can check out the ice sculptures people have made. They just made a new green house you should be sure to check out. Riding bikes on the path is also awesome!

“Peace In the City”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Sat on a bench along the river and listened to the background sounds of the city. It was a hot day but so comfortable sitting along the river, in the shade. It is a very clean park, and basically quiet. A great oasis in the hustle and bustle of the city.
