Riverview Recreation Area
Riverview Recreation Area is the first existing access downstream of the Waterloo dams for both motorists and paddlers. The river access is directly north of the city’s off-highway vehicle (OHV) park, a popular destination for riding dirt bikes and all-terrain vehicles. The access is also a short distance from the Riverview Recreation Area Trail, an extension of the South Riverside Trail.
Recommendations for Riverview Recreation Area are modest. Primarily, the Master Plan recommends reconfiguring the open parking area using two parking islands to define parking spaces and improve circulation. The redefined parking area includes seven stalls for pull-through trailer parking, including one accessible stall with an adjacent 10’ X 10’ staging area. Pollinator plantings are recommended at the parking islands, and the City would plant two shade trees to soften the landscape and provide shade in the open.
