We headed out to the park in the early evening. It was beautiful! The park was clean, well maintained and was a lovely place to go for a walk to cool off after a hot day.

Escape the city and enjoy the quiet next to the river and the Giant Spring. Enjoy the beautiful Roe River, the worlds shortest river. Tour the State Fish Hatchery. Or ... just relax under the shade of the many trees.

This is a very pretty park on the banks of the Missouri River. Its most striking feature is a huge spring that was even mentioned by Lewis and Clark. The water from the spring runs via a very short river directly into the Missouri.

Although the Roe River is the world's shortest, the Springs were a peaceful and beautiful sight to visit. Not a long stop, but worth seeing.
