Fodor's Review

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 on site. It is a popular place for picnics and pick-up sports. The park is particularly beautiful in the early evening, when you can watch the sun set just beyond the river.
