A unique Louisiana experience that ensures the conservation and restoration of native wildlife, this 210-acre park creates opportunities for human activity through the use of nature trails, fishing piers, pavilions, playground amenities, improved boat launch and other areas for community involvement.

Located on the west end of Fitzenreiter Road along the Calcasieu River, Riverside Park features an amphitheater, boat launch, picnic pavilion and plenty of fishing areas. The park includes a wooded wetland area that serves as an educational opportunity for local students.

Park improvements include a new playground with rubberized surface, a 2,000 square-foot recreation facility and pavilion at the water's edge, and restrooms available for patrons at the park's entry. The parking lot has been paved, and additional surveillance equipment has been installed.
