Had some amazing pictures of my son taken here for his senior pictures. Lots of people like the train tracks in theirs but beware there are homeless people walking around who sleep in the area. Other than taking pictures here, I would not normally go to this area.

The trail connected to this park is awesome. But the park itself is horrible. The parking lot needs repaired and the general upkeep needs a lot of attention!

I see negative reviews but I really enjoyed myself here. The park was super clean and well managed. The paved path is perfect for a bike ride and to ride even beyond the park as there is 'more' paved roadway that's great for a ride. Super enjoyable on the morning I went.

There are no words to explain how bad it is under the interstate. They have done some work but have much much more to do

Could be a great area, neglected, ignored. There are people that may not have anywhere else to go around sometimes, I like the river view, but keep one eye on my surroundings when alone.

I was there Saturday before Easter for the Happy Camper Scamper 5K to raise funds for Camp Quality. The trail runs from a large parking lot and nature center to downtown along a paved trail beside the Missouri River. The city needs to save this gem, which was recently hit hard by erosion, but still walkable.

The hike is nice. The river being the reason for the trail. There are several place to step off the trail a few feet and look across the river, up the river, down the river, and at some wet lands. The developers have done an excellent job of providing some signs giving a bit of history and interpreting what you... More

Walked along the River their are several lookout areas with some History Boards some benches located along the concrete path. We stopped and sat on a bench and a bee landed on my arm and stung me. I was just sitting there, I've always told the kids if you leave them alone they won't bother you. So much for that... More

If this is a park I have a bridge to sell ya! I don't think I have 100 words to describe this place. Dirty?

Our impressions were nothing like a few older negative reviews. The river itself is wide and muddy, but what a site to watch the fast-moving waters. The paved trail is in excellent condition except around a bend outside the Remington Nature Center -- at that location, half the trail is cut down to single file with a secured chain link... More
