Owner description: A Downtown park where three rivers meet.
Reviewed 14 February 2018

This is a nice place to visit on a warm, lazy day. You can find a park bench and read a book without interruption while enjoying the river traffic. There are no restaurants or restrooms, so you'll need to visit a local restaurant if you're from out of town. But certainly worth a visit if you're in the mood for a pleasant, laid-back afternoon.

Riverside is a very magical place in La Crosse. Stroll along the river and see the impact the river has on our region. Take a ride on the La Crosse Queen. View the Friendship gardens ( a must see at any season for flower lovers). Stop in the La Crosse County Convention and Visitors office to pick up information on area attractions. Schedule a time to visit when there is music, a festival, when the children need a place to run and play. Dogs can now be walked on their leash. Take your lunch and sit on a bench and watch a barge go by. Lucky you if you see an eagle or your visit is when a big boat like the Mississippi Queen is in port. By all means respect the current of the river and do not let children get too close. Multiple areas for weddings, so maybe you'll catch a bouquet. And, a perfect place for a break if you have been at the Convention Center all day long.

The title says it all. Ice back trails if you wish to be alone. Walk around the small garden in spring is a must

One of the most beautiful and relaxing places in La Crosse. Rotary lights in the winter and Riverfest in the Summer. Never gets old

Took a stroll with my honey on Sunday morning. Beautiful walkways and riverfront scenery. Met a few people walking dogs and joggers too. Captured nice photos of frost and grasses that had frozen in the direction of the wind. Sat on one of many benches available and enjoyed ducks socializing in and around patches of open water. Nice way to spend a quiet morning!
