While serving jury duty I needed a place to go on a sunny lunch hour. Took a walk by the river. A beautiful day. A beautiful view. It is a nice leisurely walk and a good place to exercise or feed the birds nothing more

Sometimes the water smells horrible but the walk around the falls and into lewiston is a great walk. If you walk under the bridge into lewiston you will find a small playground for kids.
