  • I love this little park... great place to just sit and relax ore get active and work out.. right on the river so beautiful sights and this pace really comes to life when the concession strand opens up for the summer and they start up the water feature..
  • A nice place to clear your mind, hear some live music or enjoy nature in downtown Dayton. There are many event that are held at Riverscape. The only thing that would make it better is if there were more diverse restaurants nearby like a Japanese, Korean, or Vietnamese place.
  • DO NOT MISS THIS. If you're in Dayton and need anything to do, do this. It's an absolute treasure not to be missed. Bring your children, bring a book, bring your camera, wear comfortable shoes, and enjoy a lovely day in the gardens. I would go even if it's not a lovely day. I can imagine being here in the rain, wearing a raincoat, rain boots and taking some really amazing shots of my kids playing in the rain with the gardens as the backdrop. Drooooool!!
  • We enjoyed ice skating with our kids. There was a penguin mascot there who really made things fun for the kids. He took the kids for a lap, danced with them, gave high fives, etc. We may well get a family pass next winter for the skating rink.
  • If you’re downtown checking out Dayton, this is a lovely stroll along the river. Check out the historic inventions thatDayton has produced too!
