The surrounding Riverfront Park includes 23 acres of land featuring a handicap accessible boat launch, disc golf course, natural play area, amphitheater, picnic shelter, storm water fountain, labyrinth, and access to the community’s more than 5 miles of recreational trails. The park is free and open to the public 24/7.
