Nice spot to get away from the big city. Lots of great views of the river lots of paths and green spaces. Parking can get to be a problem on weekends.

This park is right on the river. There is a walkway that leads to a playground and benches where you can sit and take in the beautiful view.

This was a great park along the river walkway. Many were renting bikes and other types of 2, 3 and 4 wheel pedaling machines! We walked across the old train bridge to Indiana, which had some neat coffee and ice cream shops!

There are a couple of restaurants. Joe's Crab shack comes to mind. But I don't believe there is outdoor seating and dog friendly. If you go up a few blocks off of the river, there are up around Main street.
