My kids love going here! It is a great spot for family photos or just watching the river and boats. Grills and picnic tables make it so you can grill up some lunch or dinner.

This is a great way to get away from the shore and look up and down the river. There is a small park. This is a short, pleasant visit.

The swing bridge is GONE.. In place are several spans that jet out into the Mississippi for fishing and viewing. A nice touch by the bureaucrats to preserve a bit of history and to give Inver Grove Heights an attraction.
