Description

Amid the beautifully landscaped gardens, flowering pots, hanging baskets and reflecting pools, this lively park on the banks of the Great Miami River offers a place for those who live, work and play downtown to connect to nature. Grab a Link bike and head over to the park to enjoy this urban retreat 365 days a year. The park hosts a full range of year-round activities from summer concerts to ice skating, recreation programs to large community festivals. RiverScape is a place that not only preserves glimpses of the city’s origins but one that embraces modern innovation and evolves with the needs of the vibrant and connected neighborhoods that surround it.
