Relaxing walk or bike along the Muskegon River. Plenty of benches to take a break. Places to picnic (some covered), play some tennis or softball. Newer bathrooms too! Overall nice place for a break.

I found the park during lunch one day on our vacation and had an enjoyable walk. The park is beautiful and walking/biking along the park is very enjoyable. I especially enjoyed the rafters coming down the river. The next day we parked at the Riverwalk...More
