Riverview Park & Island is no different than most other Eau Claire parks - it's connected to a body of water. Riverview Park lies along the Chippewa River on the city’s north side. An arched bridge crosses the river leading to an island where you can access the river’s backwaters for Yellow warblers, Willow Flycatchers and song sparrows.
This 33-acre park is located on the Chippewa River with access from Riverview Drive The park has three pavilions and a large boat landing. People often use the picnic tables there, adding that given the boat landing, it's a popular area to enjoy fishing and tried to combine that with the great opportunities offered by the Chippewa River.
Visitors to Riverview Park enjoy the lovely surroundings and 3 miles of track on a groomed, hilly course. It is also a popular swimming location as well as one of the local boat landings. This park includes picnicking areas and grills, as well as public restrooms.
