Alton Riverfront Park & Amphitheater


When Rufus Easton first settled Alton, he decreed that the “riverside be dedicated to commons for the people’s use without hindrance.” For the visitor today, a stroll through Riverfront Park, meandering along the river walk to the marina and riverfront, is the perfect place to contemplate the beauty and majesty of the Mississippi River. The Riverfront Amphitheater features summer concerts and festivals year-round, with the river as a backdrop. A pedestrian overpass connects the park with the historic downtown shopping district. The Confluence Bike Trail and Alton Trail connect here in the park, offering cyclists a leisurely ride and place to rest. Located on the riverfront, the Alton Marina is a first-class docking facility offering long-term docking, transient slips and amenities.
