Very pleasant to stroll along the river with some historic signs along the way. There had been recent rain so the river flowed fast. Many banches interspersed if wanting to rest. Saw many couples & families strolling or biking also.

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.
