Riverview Park

Riverview Drive, Alton, IL 62002

Bird & Eagle Watching

Grab your picnic lunch because the view is incredible from this little park.

Arguably this park has one of the best views of the Mississippi River from the bluffs nestled in the historic Christian Hill District, which is filled with 1800s era architecture. Fall in love with the view of the river and even say "I Do" under the gazebo for an unforgettable afternoon.
