South Riverfront Park

Park your car and watch the boats meander up and down the river. You can view the ferry crossing the river, watch bald eagles as they fish the waters and maybe catch a glimpse of one of the "Queens" (Delta, American or Mississippi) as they travel from St. Paul to New Orleans. A boat ramp is also available at this end of the riverfront.
