Spend an afternoon picnicking at this lush green park with spectacular views of the Mississippi, just on the other side of Audubon Zoo. Officially called The Riverview, locals call it "The Fly" after a butterfly-shaped building that used to be onsite. It is a popular place for picnics and pickup sports. The park is particularly beautiful in the early evening, when you can watch the sunset just beyond the river.
