Its a pretty good size park with lots of spots where you can access the river. Nice quiet place for a walk. There is a playground and restrooms in the park. Super short walk from shopping district.

It's not a fancy park, but there is a lovely lawn, benches, and shade trees. ...a good place to rest during a break from shopping.

Nice little playground, with a short 5min walk to the river. Kids like to throw rocks into the water.

River rafting or tube floating on the river are both enjoyable in Leavenworth. This is a good take out spot and you can picnic here.

Nice experience floating down river, especially in the hot August month. Or rent a bike and ride through town. It's beautiful in the morning.

Not sure what tree you are asking about, but the holiday lights in Leavenworth burn brightly from the lighting festival in November until well into January.

For sure there is no Ice skating on any lake or river Near Leavenworth or Wentchee or Lake chelan. It's cold but not that cold and the lakes are to big to freeze.
