Such a pleasant walk connecting three parks. The St Joseph River is picturesque. Lots of play areas for children, fishing, a Salomon ladder, shade and sun. It's a place where people greet one another and neighbors stop and visit.

This is the best and most peaceful place to walk in the city. It is a great place to have a picnic and listen to the water flow. Only down side are the geese and geese droppings.

We love to walk around the Riverwalk as a family. The kids enjoy Central Park immensely, but they also like walking along the river to see what they can see and throwing rocks into it.

I enjoy walking along the river with or without my children. This activity is good when you want to enjoy nature and it is free. It is a good day out with the family or for a date. I have walked early in the morning...More

The riverwalk is a work in progress, but is a very fun place to visit. Interesting to see the statues along the river and the waterfall is beautiful. We had some extra time and thought to spend time and it was well worth the effort....More

In a town where sidewalks are not always present, this is a terrific place for a 5km run or do it multiple times for something longer. Very scenic and well kept .

You will find free parking on the street virtually everywhere around the park or there is areas near the Mishawaka police department. When in doubt, just park on Mishawaka Ave just west of 7-11. Always lots of spots there!

The new River Rock apartments are right off of the River Walk and look fantastic. It is also near Central Park and right near Battell Park which is great outdoor space!!!
