Riverside Park – Burlington, Iowa
The Mississippi riverfront was the focus of activity in early Burlington. The river traffic (which could dock at the cobblestone steamboat landing) brought a tremendous number of people into the community and provided strong social and commercial links to the eastern part of the United States. Today’s visitors to the riverfront can walk along the river from the south boat ramps to the welcoming gazebo at the north end of the park. Eventually, this park will be linked with the Hoover Nature Trail which terminates in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
