We wouldn't go out of our way to see this, but worthwhile if in the area. Maybe better if when the lights are on. Small facility.

This is a great place to walk, jog, bike. We did not have enough time to walk all of it, but what we saw as awesome. We plan to go back when we have more time to see everything.

This place is a nice visit to walk, relax, run, ride, or just sit by river. It's well lighted and sidewalks big enough for passing others. Late nights also safe enough to walk whether going just around short distance or walking all the way around....More

Such a pleasant walk connecting three parks. The St Joseph River is picturesque. Lots of play areas for children, fishing, a Salomon ladder, shade and sun. It's a place where people greet one another and neighbors stop and visit.

This is the best and most peaceful place to walk in the city. It is a great place to have a picnic and listen to the water flow. Only down side are the geese and geese droppings.

We love to walk around the Riverwalk as a family. The kids enjoy Central Park immensely, but they also like walking along the river to see what they can see and throwing rocks into it.

We like to walk in the early evening, and when visiting this city we thoroughly enjoyed our walk by the river. The lights are also a nice touch and made our walk even more memorable. The park appears to be good for runners, walkers, and...More

You will find free parking on the street virtually everywhere around the park or there is areas near the Mishawaka police department. When in doubt, just park on Mishawaka Ave just west of 7-11. Always lots of spots there!

The new River Rock apartments are right off of the River Walk and look fantastic. It is also near Central Park and right near Battell Park which is great outdoor space!!!
