We walked only a little of the area but it was interesting and offered varied delights from the art to the local flavor of the friendly people on the street

My dad and I really enjoyed walking along the river, seeing the falls, I’m going to the Japanese garden. The landscaping was beautiful.

We walked along here in the early evening on a travel stop over and thoroughly enjoyed! Lots of families out enjoying the scenery as well. The scenery is beautiful but definitely man made influences (not all natural).

Took my cousin and family on a tour of the city. They are looking for a place to retire. Wonderful venue for relaxing and also for exercising, walking, riding bike, jogging and people watching.

A very nice peaceful place to explore with the family, with plenty of places for the kids to explore. You must keep an eye on young children as there are places were a child could fall into the river. We also went back a month...More

The Snake River Greenbelt is one lone and ever-changing park. It is full of new ideas in the park benches. The raw power of a river is on display at the city center end with the generating plant that is so well designed that you...More

Skip an I-15 gas station or rest stop and take 3 extra minutes to hit up this easily accessible park. Parking was easy (with travel trailer) and this was a great place to stretch our legs, walk the dogs and enjoy a picnic lunch before...More

The complete walk is 5.3 miles. We walked from the falls for about an hour at a leisurely place. Lots of roller blades, bikes and family's strolling. You will enjoy it
