It was established in 1909, and built through 1929 according to plans developed by noted landscape architect Ossian C. Simonds. The park includes the caretaker's house (1880s), three scenic overlooks with retaining walls, the concrete stairway, the driving path, the logging road, the statue of Mark Twain (1913), and the memorial stone and plaque. The park encircles the 17 acres that form the city's Water Department's facilities.

  • There's plenty to do at this park. There's a waling trail that will take you around part of the park. Unfortunately, a windstorm years ago damaged many of the trees and closed part of this area...  more »
  • Beautiful park with paved trails/roads. Very clean and safe. Much larger than expected. Highly recommend!  more »
  • River view park has a special place in my heart. The trails and trees surrounding it is beautiful. Great place for a walk or a picnic. River view was a usual date night place my boyfriend would go to. And now we got engaged there.
  • This was great. Part of the road is blocked off. Not sure if I missed something or not. My son and I walked a little ways in the road closed to motor traffic. It we got hot and headed back to the car. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the restrooms. The playground was great for the kids too. Beautiful view of the mighty Mississippi!
