Nice walk

This is a great place to sit and relax while watching boats and ducks on the river. Very nice sidewalk system for walks. Close to downtown for eats and drinks.

This is a very nice walk along the river. It's a part of the downtown area. Lots of benches and walking.

Beautiful fall visit. Not a lot of boat traffic, but still pretty with fall colors and so close to down town it's a must visit.

A real find right on the river. The gardens reflect the nationalities of the La Crosse "sister cities" around the world. Clever, delightful park and a "don't miss" site in the lovely town

If you are looking for a place for a short stroll on a nice day or a picnic with family or friends...this would be a lovely place for those activities. It is not really a must see destination in and of itself, however.

Riverside park provides an up front and personal walk along the Mississippi to enjoy by yourself or favorite person/animal. We stayed and the Radisson and felt the constant draw to the river, which can be easily accessed through the park. We sat, walked,played and ran at different parts of the day. The only draw back is that riverfront properties disconnect... More

Riverside park is a great place to visit. You get to see some cool boat traffic. The garden on the north end of the park is great to check out.

Is wonderful park to enjoy the heart of LaCroose, Wisconsin. Lovely music concerts offered during the summer months, and breath taking lights display in late November through December.

We walked here from our hotel. Great place to just take a nice slow walk or fast walk if you want to. Lots of park benches to sit on along the way. The walkway is paved and easy to navigate.
