River View Park, located in the center of the Village, (Main Street-Highway 35) was built in 2008 and is a beautiful observation deck. It offers a park-like setting for “Byway Tourists” and local residents to stop, relax and enjoy the natural scenic wonder and vastness of the majestic Mississippi River and the quaintness of a small river-town.

The park is also a few feet from the double tracks of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad line and has become a favorite spot for “train watchers” to observe the many freight trains proceeding north and south daily. In 2009, a "Wisconsin Historical marker" was built and dedicated at the Park honoring former Governor Patrick Lucey, a native son of Ferryville.

Beautiful flower gardens adorn the park as well as commemorative bricks that have been purchased to honor the memory of loved ones as well as current family and friends.
