Riverview Park encompasses 11-acres and was acquired in 1979 with Community Development Block Grant funds. It is now a vital part of the city's Cedar River Greenway System.

The Cedar River Greenway encompasses over 550 acres of developed and undeveloped parks, open space, trails, and the Maplewood Golf Course along the Cedar River.

A picnic shelter is nestled between the bank of the Cedar River and the Cedar River Trail. The shelter and park are accessed from the parking lot by crossing the new bridge over the Cedar River. A restroom is on-site, plus the shelter is equipped with running water, electricity and two barbecues.

Riverview Bridge Replacement

Riverview Bridge replacement

Built in the 1960s, the old Riverview Park bridge spanned the Cedar River, with in-river treated timber piles supporting a steel and timber structure. Time, and flood debris damage, led the city to successfully seek legislative funding in 2014 to replace the old bridge with a single span, pedestrian aluminum bridge with a light penetrating grated surface.

Three interpretive signs describe the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe's former use of the Cedar River, and the two iconic fish who spawn below, the endangered Chinook and the Sockeye salmon.
