Loved the walk along the river, very pretty and peaceful. They have painted rocks, you are to pick up & re-hide for others to find, which I'm taking mine to Missouri to hide for others to find. Great place to visit & it's free.

Overall Green River is an amazing little town. Expedition Island, the splash pad, and the walk along the river are all amazing. Take the time to read some of the interpretive signs along the walk. You will learn a lot about the area.

We were there for a film screening and really enjoyed the park. It's well-kept and clean, with a nice river walk and kayak play area. Also interesting are the historic monuments commemorating the many exploring expeditions that have launched down the Green River from the...More

Picknicked here while travelling south. Clean park with nice lawns and picknick tables. Possibility to play in the Green River. Quiet in this week day and no mosquito to be seen.
