Along the River
Bridging the gap between urban downtown and nature, downtown Mishawaka’s north end is hugged by the St. Joseph River. One of the defining landmarks of Mishawaka, our riverwalk is the perfect bookend to our downtown area. This circular pathway connects both sides of the river and has recently been enhanced with landscaping and new lighting.
