This is a nice park that borders the Arkansas river and provides access for hiking trails, fishing, kayaking and outdoor recreation. It is located at the end of Main St heading east and ends at the river.

We stopped at the river front park after having lunch in Buena Vistas. It is a great place to walk or just sit and listen to the passing water. Good relaxation location.

Stayed a few days here while rafting. Wonderful little town with great energy. We had a great time walking along the river and the shops/restaurants were fun.

Beautiful and peaceful place on the river. The city has created some kayak skills training areas in the river, unfortunately when we were there, no one was practicing or using the river. Perhaps that was become of the heavy rain/snows they had received that raised...More

We came down from a beautiful hike on a hot day to find a bathroom and water bottle refill station waiting for us. A nice facility that provides access to the river and trailheads. The hike provided glorious views and a good workout. Dogs on...More
