Right on the Mississippi River, it's a must-see in La Crosse! I go there as often as possible. Especially beautiful during the holidays when Rotary lights are up!

A great park along the Mississippi River where you can sit for hours just watching the mallard ducks, watching the barges go by, enjoy a picnic lunch, take a walk, etc. Very clean area. Very peaceful and relaxing.

Beautiful town park in La Crosse on the banks of the Mississippi river. The park reminds me a lot of the parks in Savannah, Ga.

This is a beautiful, well-maintained park overlooking the Mississippi River. It is spotlessly clean - well-lit - with wide, easy-to-walk sidewalks. The flowers and plants are gorgeous and the views of the river are just beautiful. You can see tow barges hauling their loads up...More
