Mishawaka Riverwalk

The Mishawaka Riverwalk follows the St. Joseph River from Logan Street to the Mishawaka Dam.  The total trail is about 2.8 miles and has activities for all ages.  People enjoy the trail for walking, biking, running, or rollerblading.  In addition, there are basketball courts, tennis courts, baseball diamond, playgrounds, band shell, gazebo, pavilion, rock garden, natural gardens and sculptures for those who want more variety.

The trail takes you through parts of Battell Park, Central Park, Beutter Park, Kamm Island and Kate's Garden.  There are 4 pedestrian bridges, two at Kamm Island, one at Central Park and the latest one that connects Beutter Park and Battell Park.  The bridge connecting Buetter Park and Battell Park has become quite an attraction since it is a suspension bridge and sways a little depending on the wind and number of people on it.  During the warmer months there is plenty to enjoy, such as art shows, band concerts, food tastings and other community events.  However, the colder months allow the opportunity to view the river undistracted by the surrounding beauty.

If you would like more information, including a map of the Mishawaka Riverwalk, check out the City of Mishawaka website.

    Great Article Kristi,

    The river walk is a great place to visit. It actually sits on the site of the old Ball-Ban / Uniroyal Plant that wes demolished several years ago. It was nice to see the city makes some greenspace out of the land. There is talk that it may eventually stretch all the way to Merrifield park.

    Hello, I just rode on the Riverwalk today, it was a nice ride, I circled around it twice! As for the plans to connect to Merrifield park, they're working on that & may be completed sometime within a year or two.

    River Walk is actually 2.5 miles. Measured over the past 6 years with a Garmin 305
