Located 500 feet above Alma, it’s a small city park with a big view of the Mississippi River for several miles to the north and south. According to Better Homes & Gardens magazine, “Buena Vista Park is one of the river valley’s finest natural balconies.”

The park is a great birding spot with breathtaking sunsets and is a “must see” when you come to Alma. This scenic vista 500 feet above Alma and the Mississippi River Valley has a natural viewing platform. Visitors can watch barges and riverboats traveling on the river and locking through Lock & Dam #4 along with views of sand islands and backwaters.
