Riverside Park

The landmark park in La Crosse, Riverside Park is the center of an active community.  At the confluence of three rivers, Riverside Park is designed for active lifestyles, and for those that want to just watch the river slowly pass by.

This park is the home of the La Crosse Queen.  Visitors can take to the water and a Friday evening Pizza Cruise or a daily sight-seeing cruise on the La Crosse Queen.

 

 

At the north end of the park, guests enjoy strolling through the Riverside International Friendship Gardens.

Adjacent to the gardens is Riverside Museum and the offices for the La Crosse County Convention & Visitors Bureau.  We invite visitors to take a step back in time and enjoy the history that makes our beautiful city unique!

Depending on the season, visitors may just be lucky enough to view one of the large steamboats that take port at the levee centered in the park.  Make sure to have your cameras ready!
