Nice relaxing place to get away and watch the water wash up on shore. It's also nice to watch the barges going down the river.

We went for the eclipse, so everything was pretty crowded. It's a great view of the river, and on a regular day I'm sure it would be much more pleasant.

This is a lovely place to take a picnic lunch, enjoy a cup of coffee or just watch the sunset. Yo7 can go all the way down to the water if you want. Lots of places to walk pets or kids to play.

We had a beautiful day to stroll along the river and look at the flood murals. Highly recommend if you are in the area.

Great learnings from History and being able to see how the area has come up thru the years and what catastrophic flooding did to the area. Some buildings still stand and show the transformation.
