Riverfront Park

Riverfront Park

Landmarks Blvd. between Piasa St. & Henry St.
Alton, Illinois 62002

Come spend some much-needed time outdoors at Alton's gorgeous Riverfront Park. Home to a 4,000 seat amphitheater that hosts live concerts and performances, festivals, fairs, outdoor movie events, and more- plus several miles of manicured walking trails- the park is a great place to get some exercise and admire the mighty Mississippi. The amphitheater operates spring through fall and the park is open all year.

Riverfront Park is walking distance from downtown Alton restaurants and shopping by crossing a footbridge over Landmarks Boulevard. The park has walking/biking trails, a summer splash pad for kids, is a docking location for passing riverboat cruises, close to a casino and marina, and is a great location to watch fireworks over the river, take photos of wildlife, and see the Clark Bridge. The walking trails through Riverfront Park connect two Madison County Transit trails including one that traverses the Great River Road and another that leads all the way to Granite City and the old Chain of Rocks Bridge.

Looking for a place to host your wedding or fundraiser? The amphitheater and grounds can be also be rented for events. Whether to watch for American bald eagles, your best friend's wedding, big bands or local jams, or just to catch some fresh air- come to Riverfront Park for a beautiful day on the river!
