Liked everyting about the Buena Vista River Park. Lots of places to set up a picnic. Great place to walk or ride a bike. Lots of fun to watch the rafters and kayakers come down the river. Absolutey beautiful.

“Great find!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We were just driving around and ran into this area of town. Loved being close to the river. Great walking and hiking, There is a disc golf course as well. Some easy bouldering for the beginners. A couple of cute shops and restaurants nearby. Very neat and well cared for.

“Beautiful park- lots to do for everyone!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

A very nice park, even if you aren't a kayaker. There is a running path, some hiking trails, a bike park, skate park, tennis courts, basketball courts, some bouldering rocks (with holds) and free wifi!
What a great place this would be to live. I would spend every evening in this wonderful multipurpose park.

“Great features, smooth trails, plenty to stay for”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

There is plenty here for the kayakers, of course. Not just the main ''competition hole'' where the pro's tumble but a frothier top hole and a smooth wave between. No shuttle required as you can simply walk back up the trail to the car.
I think what makes it special is the open, easy-going atmosphere and social gathering places all just at the top of the bank. With bike trails just across the river, wifi and weekly music at ''the beach'', good food and drinks at the Eddyline, then the amazing Deer-hammer and Asian Palace just up the road for when the sun goes down. I can see why people buy houses here!

“A great place to get out doors right in town!”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

The River Park is just south of Downtown near the newly developed "South Main" community. It includes a walking path, kayaking course, climbing course, out door living room with furniture made of mosaic tiles, and an outdoor venue featuring drinks and live music in the summer. Other attractions include a mountain biking dirt track and a pet friendly environment. If you stay in town it is a great place for an evening or morning stroll next to the rushing waters of the Arkansas River.
