Not a destination, but a fun little stop if you are nearby. We stumbled onto this by accident. The new "South Main" are is nice and clean. Kids enjoyed the park and there is also a trail that runs alongside the river.

Fun for little people. Nice New area made to look as if it is 'old Buena Vista' to those who don't know our area. Limited but sweet

The kids played on the rock wall and the adults played frisbee. Beautiful hike nearby along the river with an overlook. There were people rafting and kayaking. Very serene! The nearby neighborhood has shops and places to eat.

Large single and double large boulders to practice climbing skills; nestled next to the beautiful Arkansas River and along the walking trails. Easily accessible from town; family fun!

We stubbled upon this small but surprise garden of "boulders" while walking south along the "RiverSide Trail" from Buena Vista Whitewater Park to a newly constructed area called South Main Town Square. If you are driving from Hwy 24, turn east onto Main St & go through the old town of Buena Vista. Keep on going east while looking for... More

Great little bouldering spot my husband and I found during our stay in Buena Vista. So much fun to come across a place to boulder for free.

Certainly a unique attraction that entertains the little ones for a while. The climbing boulder át the town square was also find did the kids. If we had come to Buena Vista just for the Boulder Garden I would be disappointed but it is a nice side trip.

Great park for the kids to climb around and learn bouldering skills. Also great place to watch some pro's show off some climbing skills.

After lunch, we went to this lovely boulder area....well laid out and a place for exploration. You wind thru the old portion of Buena Vista to get to the new area. Both are interesting and well worth a stop when visiting the town....
