Soft grass. Musicians playing. Families picnicking. The carousel was closed but you could see it through the windows, including the woodwork repairs more »
Beautiful park! I went tp Riverfront City Park to ride my bike. There were well maintained paved trails as well as some gravel ones. I spent an hour riding my bike around and did not get to hit all of them. There is a really cool bridge over the river. The playground looked fun, and there is a little stage like are with concrete retaining wall and grass seating. This was my first time to this park, and I really liked it.
Great park! Something for everyone to do! Playground big enough and safe. Great for long walks and activities as a family. Beautiful landscape and care of the park. Would suggest more bathrooms for how big park is other than that I totally recommend this park
