Riverview Park reviews
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!
