Always something going on or grab a bench and sit by the river with a good book or cup of coffee. You can walk along the river, bike, jog, etc.

We got lucky and arrived in LaCrosse on a beautiful spring day of 70 degrees. We had been driving for several hours and we found this park, found a place to park our car along the river, and had a wonderful picnic with great people watching. This is a very large and very long city park situated right along the... More

This is a great walking trail area by the Mississippi River. There is plenty of places to sit and watch- people, animals and boats on the river if you like. An awesome sunset view as well.

Fabulous park right on the river just a block or two from the historic downtown area. Plenty of room, many things to see, catch one of the many festivals held there, or catch a ride on the La Crosse Queen. Definitely a must see if visiting La Crosse

I love going to Riverside. It's a great place during the holiday season to view the rotary lights. It's also beautiful during the summer. Riverfest is held here. It's easy to get to and beautiful.

Beautiful setting along the Mississippi River. Park is clean, lots of gardens and walkways. Benches every 10 ft so you can sit, relax and take in the views!

Riverside park is always nice, pleasant to watch the river traffic float by, watch the ducks and run the dog even in the winter. Rotary lights in December is outstanding in the park!

I have visited this opark in every season and each season offers visitors a different perspective of the Mississippi River. Popular among the locals, it is well attended during the summer and fall months, but it also has an appeal in the winter and spring. Various displays are dotted arond the park and a quaint Asian garden is a nice... More

The river walk along the Mississippi was beautiful. We spent our time photographing and enjoying the fresh air. The Friendship Garden at the North end was a delight; even on a cold winter's day.
