Mishawaka Riverwalk

Whether you’re looking for a great place to run, stroll, or bike, the Mishawaka Riverwalk is a great place to go. Located at N Spring St, Mishawaka, IN 46544. The riverwalk is a relaxing place to walk and run, and is also home to a number of great parks. There is an Olympic-sized swimming pool, a football/soccer field, an outdoor ice rink, a water basketball net, playground equipment, and a boat launch. The riverwalk also offers a wide variety of places to picnic.


Along the riverwalk, you will see plenty of scenic views of the river and its sweeping vistas. There are also several parks that line the river, including Central Park. This park features five pavilions, a splash pad, a footbridge, and lighted tennis courts. It is also home to the Mishawaka Farmers’ Market, which is held on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. between May and September.


The riverwalk also provides a nice system of trails that run on the river’s banks. This trail is designed to be safer at night and has detours to the river for water sports.
