This is a nice park that borders the Arkansas river and provides access for hiking trails, fishing, kayaking and outdoor recreation. It is located at the end of Main St heading east and ends at the river.

We stopped at the river front park after having lunch in Buena Vistas. It is a great place to walk or just sit and listen to the passing water. Good relaxation location.

Stayed a few days here while rafting. Wonderful little town with great energy. We had a great time walking along the river and the shops/restaurants were fun.
