There are several parks named "Riverside Park" within the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area corridor. The one featured here is in Minneapolis not too far from the downtown area. Riverside Park is a neighborhood park with something for everyone. The park has a nice view of the Mississippi Gorge and a large grassy area. Also look for summer programs called Summer Playground, running from June 18th to August 24th.
