Real shame that it was so deserted on a Sunday afternoon because it is a nice area. We have been to several river walks because we enjoy walking them with our dog and this was a pleasant surprise for a smaller town.

Elkhart did a great job with the riverwalk. You get sun and shade when you walk and it looks pretty. I wish there were some more restaurants along the walk.

There are festivals at the riverwalk, some fundraisers, walkers, dog-walkers, fishermen. And it's a beautiful walk along the Elkhart River. Very historical park. Potawattomi Indians use to roam it.
