Great place to take a walk or have a picnic with family and friends. I have done both and enjoyed each visit. Love looking at all the boats docked there.

This is a nice quiet park. Great lookout tower with seating. Nice to go up in the tower and watch the river. Nice walking path around the whole park. Has nice seating areas along the walking path also.

The marina is breathtaking views for the mississippi river throughout the whole marina, there are plenty of boats at the dock. If you are there during December and November you will see lots of Eagles.

Until then, however, this remains your best bet for pool 16 river access for any sizable watercraft. It's best... More
