  • Beautiful, clean, family friendly. Tons of pokestops and there are almost always lures, if that is the kind of thing you are interested in. My favorite part though is the swinging benches that face the river. So relaxing.
  • Love the festival's hosted here! Open area with things to do for the whole family. The summer time has a water play area for the kids and in the winter, there's a ice skating rink...and you can't forget the sound stage for the music events that go on!
  • A beautiful park, easily the best looking entrance to the city. Outside of festivals and holidays it's very accessible though it can get crowded around those times. (Plenty of pokestops.)
  • I love RiverScape! I am so glad the City of Dayton is putting so much effort in cleaning up the area and making it family friendly. My favorite thing is sitting on the swings along the river and enjoying the atmosphere.
  • Good, beautiful views, good prices. The major drawback: the concession stand's service. Horible. takes a long time. Gives your food to other people. Has their hot chocolate machine go down and not tell you when it goes back up. I suggest if you come to bring your own food and your own drinks.
