Along the banks of the Arkansas River between the 11th Street Bridge and 81st Street, and along Riverside Drive, are the River Parks. A walking/biking trail stretches 10 miles from 11th Street to 101st Street along the east bank of the river. Scattered along the east bank are numerous picnic and recreation areas, decorated with murals and statues. On the west bank on South Jackson near downtown is River West Festival Park, a unique venue with an amphitheater and floating stage.
