Levee Park is another beautiful City park. The park is a passive, sitting park that consists of trails, large trees, benches, historical monuments, and breathtaking views of the Mississippi River. The park still serves as the passenger riverboat landing area for the City.
When riverboats are not docked, the dock wall is also used for short term dockage for smaller recreational craft. From there, it's just a quick walk to the heart of Red Wing's downtown, where you can enjoy dining, shopping, art, museums, and so much more. Small boats can temporarily tie down at the wall or at the 180-foot floating dock during the daytime. Check out Ole Miss Marina for any overnight transient dockage needs.
The park's river frontage and passenger riverboat docking area underwent a major renovation in 2019-2020. Over 400 feet of new steel seawall was installed, creating a 900-foot boat docking area. Within this area, a notch, or inset, in the seawall provides a 175-foot pocket where a floating dock has been placed. The new fender stations provide protection to the Levee Wall when the large passenger riverboats are docked. New lighting accents the fully accessible extended, rebuilt promenade and roadway, walking, and bicycle lane. Additional seating fronts the entire rebuilt park riverfront.
