This is an easy and nice spot to spend a bit of time enjoying the views of the Fox River and the ever changing wildlife. It is handicap accessible and makes a nice "Push" for the wheelchair bound.

Very lovely river walk area in De Pere. Overlook does have a view of a paper factory but the pelicans and fishing boats make up for that. Great for families and you can stop and get ice cream!!
