A Great Place to Walk
Jun 2021
Absolutely loved walking the park along the Mississippi each morning while we visited the La Crosse area. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy as well. The actual riverfront area path is about 1 mile end to end. It was just over 2 miles round trip from our hotel, The GrandStay. Definitely worth checking out while you are in the area.

International Garden
Sep 2021
This is part of the downtown waterfront park and has several small gardens/sections planted to evoke a theme of LaCrosse’s sister cities in various countries. It makes a pleasant walk and the park overall is very nice with views of bridges across the river and wooded islands in it. The variation, or nationality of the gardens is sometimes a bit hard to catch, but an effort was made by a small city to have something special. The visit is nice and worth a short stop.

Very, very nice
Aug 2021
What a wonderful addition to our stay at the Radisson. We could see the park from our window and I walked along the river every day. One day, there was a concert in the bandshell and it was nice to see how many people came out for it and the enjoyment it seemed to bring. There is abundant seating, paved walkways and a welcoming atmosphere. Highly enjoyable space. And it leads to the Peace Gardens too.

A Surprise
Sep 2021
We were not expecting such a huge, beautiful and relaxing place. You can go to exercise, take beautiful photographs, relax or even have a picnic. It is convenient to a multitude of area businesses as well.

Stroll along the Mississippi
Aug 2021
The views and the atmosphere of the park were great , yet just a bit smelly from some of the stagnant water in the river I suspect. Still I would love to have spent more than just a few hours there, it was a great place to kill time while waiting for our table at the Waterfront.

Delightful!
Jul 2021
This park is absolutely delightful for your early morning run or bike ride. You can pop over here easily if you're staying at the Charmant Hotel. There's plenty of open space and walking trails. It's big enough for a large group and pretty enough for a picnic for two! Visit the International Garden or just enjoy the Mississippi!

Quick stop in downtown La Crosse
Jul 2021 • Couples
This park was very cool in downtown La Crosse. It is located right next to the Mississippi River and has great walking trails and an international garden. When I stopped here there was live music playing in the park grandstand. It was a really nice park and I would return again.

Get your ice cream and go for a walk
Jun 2021
We think at sunset is best to stroll along the walkway. We had enough sun this day and during the evening time we found it more relaxing.
