We hiked through Riverside Park and on the trails out to the business district where we ate at B.A. Burrito before hiking back. This is a beautiful park and work a little time if you've got it!

My family visited the holiday light display here this year as well as several times in the past. It is impressive with live nativity scenes, choirs, a fire pit with smores, an ice rink, warming house, Santa, reindeer and lights galore. You can't help but...More

We went to the park during the rotary club Christmas lights event. We drove through and then walked through after dinner. It was a perfect evening.

Check out the Christmas lights up from Thanksgiving to New Years. Gorgeous and free. It's a beautiful place to walk or just sit and watch the river traffic go by during the warmer months.

The view is one of the best LaCrosse has to offer. The changing seasons make several trips worth it throughout the year. If visiting or living in LaCrosse it is a must

The weather was not conducive to walking but this park is a real gem. Can walk quite a distance along the river and it is beautiful.

We stopped by and took a drive through the park. The views of the river were great. The weather was very cold so we did not walk around much but we would have loved to spend time there in warmer weather.
