What a super cool new playground for the kids! There were lovely views of the river, but we couldn't do the riverwalk since part of the ramp had collapsed, they had it fenced off. Very cool historic buildings on-site!

The park sits right along the river. You can park here and walk the length of the river walk. There are several restored frontier buildings in the park that are beautiful. The park is small but well maintained and has bathrooms and a playground.
