About RiverParkSummer Series at River Park
RiverPark was designed to be a special place where people and nature meet. Its location at North River Lane and Peyton Street on the northwest bank of the Fox River is within easy walking distance of downtown Geneva. Stop by and enjoy the more than two acres of park, bike and walking trails, native plants, terraced history wall, and the river. Rest on a bench, the story rock, or the turtle boulder and take in the peaceful sounds of the natural ecosystem.

Originally home to an assortment of factories, the property had fallen into disrepair. In 1998, a group of dedicated Geneva residents took action to ensure the site would become a beautiful park accessible to all. RiverPark was transferred from the City to the Geneva Park District in 2014. Read more about the park's history and its unique features.
