Nice park along the water, great place for a quiet walk. The old train trestles add unique character to the beauty of the park.

The Fox river is beautiful and there is abundant wildlife to view. Smack in downtown Geneva, a peaceful place just to take a scroll or rent a bike or canoe. A must see place to go!!
