  • The City Fathers may be neglecting the park a little these days, but it remains a home to spectacular River views from a number of places, all accessible by car. You will be happy you drove through.

  • We enjoyed walking here and being able to look over the Mississippi River. On a beautiful day, you can see fairly far.

  • Beautiful and peaceful. There are trails and paved areas to walk or cycle. Interesting trees to admire. I love walking my dog there. The stone wall overlooking some of the Mississippi River islands was such a peaceful place to sit and reflect or read a book. Very clean park. My new favorite place in Hannibal!
  • Beautiful scenery. Lots of walking area. Good to take your leashed pets. And have even taken family photos there that turned out awesome
