The river walk is a great stretch of walking platforms for anyone. Great views and safe since it's near the police station...beautiful in the fall!

Was working in South Bend when I ran across this walk, very nice enjoyable scenery along the river. I highly recommend the walk for the relaxation, excellent views and history of the dam.

The RiverWalk is very nice in Mishawaka. It is about a 2 mile loop around the river. Lots of trees and cool for the hot summers. There are kids fountains that pop up from the ground that can be run through. Kids love them. Well done by the city.

It was our first time near South Bend and it was a nice fall day when we ran across this park near downtown of Mishawaka, IN. Nice walk with bridges across very scenic stream and falls. Very enjoyable! Lots of folks walking their dogs.

We go there to walk during the week. There are bands there during the summer. It is so relaxing to bring a chair and just sit and listen to the water. It's a favorite place to go .
