Riverside Park is the Crown Jewel of Beloit, Wisconsin.

Riverside Park—located on the banks of the Rock River—buzzes with activity all year, but it really comes alive during summer with Music at Harry’s Place most Friday evening, Dancing at Harry’s Place every other Monday night and the Fourth of July Festival. In addition, this 23-acre park is home to famous Turtle Island Playground, Beloit River Walk—a 3.5 mile paved walk-bike path around the Rock River, the Harry C. Moore Pavilion, and the Rotary River Center. Paddle boats, fishing poles, and tandem bicycles are available for rent. The park also features fishing on the lagoon, two picnic shelters, play equipment, lighted tennis courts, concessions and restrooms. Free Admission.
