  • Nice afternoon stroll along the rivers. There were no kayak rentals available when we were visiting. The food concession was also closed but there were restaurants nearby.

  • First time there. It was very cool! Loved the fountain spray, had never seen anything like that. There was a band playing R & B music. Loved the bench swings, we sat and watched the people canoeing in the river. They have a water pad for kids to play in. The park was very clean no litter.
  • Beautiful metro park located by the river. Lots of interesting stuff to see. There is public restrooms, a splash pad for the kids, swings and benches. It is even cool to watch people surf the rapids. A couple of downfalls are that I'm not exactly sure where parking is or how much is available, some of the fountains were empty, and not sure why the fountain was turned off. I'd like to go back again though.
  • Very nice, clean and relaxing. Good place to freely walk and exercise. The decor looks beautiful and the ice skating this time of year looks fun. Plenty of parking available as well.
  • This is a great place to hang out! The city has done a lot of work to make this a really special place!
  • Celtic Fest at RiverScape! Yay! Was lots of fun! Great shopping! Lots of artists! Lots of foods to choose from! The bands were excellent! Great day!!!
