The Mississinewa Riverwalk is a 2.25 mile long walking path which begins at the Washington Street bridge and 1st Street, and extends through to the fishing pond in Matter Park. The Mississinewa Riverwalk is a trail for both recreation and physical fitness. Residents and visitors take advantage of the paved trail in a variety of ways.
Along the Mississinewa Riverwalk, you’ll pass through several public parks which have playgrounds, shelters with seating and open grills, historic monuments, benches with commemorative plaques, and so much more…all of this while enjoying the beautiful Mississinewa River on your journey.
The Mississinewa Riverwalk was established in the 1980s, through community partnerships. The Parks & Recreation Department is thankful to have worked with sponsors and contributors including the Grant County Realtors and Grant County Historical Society. Most recently, the City has had the privilege of working with the Realtors, in-house marketing, and an intern from Indiana Wesleyan University on new signage and overall riverwalk makeover.
