Virtual Walk: Riverside Park

By Videos, Virtual Tours

Enjoy a springtime virtual walk around the River Rock Garden in Riverside Park! This Olmsted Park was designed in 1898 by the Olmsted Brothers, and once had a landing on the river where boats from downtown would load and unload passengers. The River Rock Garden was restored in 2014 and is a reinterpretation of the original Minnow Pool.
