Right time of year it is nice. Along the river are nice sites but mosquitos can be a problem. Park is subject to flooding and can be closed. Sometimes a long time. Wide open grass center of Park is wide open for frisbee kids and and such, nice. Restrooms and showers nice. Watch kids by river sites! Watch for music concerts. Lots of music get together in park, Mankato and N. Mankato outside. Lots of bars with excellent music and dining inside. This area loves music, blues, rock and country. I not trying to be negative on park as right conditions can be 4 1/2.
