The Park at River Walk Reviews
This park has been one of the calmest and safest parks I have been at in a while. There are plenty of families enjoying the day and everyone was just so friendly, especially when our dog would run up to them or just want to play with the kids. The two boys I. The back ground had a great time getting wet in the creek. If you want a relaxing day at the park either with your family, dog or friends, I recommend this park.
This is such a beautiful park. There is so much room to wander and explore. We love the water feature and my kids love crossing all of the bridges. We visited for the first time in a while, this weekend and unfortunately, the play structure was damaged. Two slides have large cracks/holes that might scrape kids. That is the only reason I went with four stars. Seriously, love this park.
