The park is very pretty and as you can see sits right next to the Provo River. When we visited the park, the guys played Frisbee while my daughter and I had fun taking pictures.
Here are some photos of the park and the Provo River.
The Provo River is to the right of the trail in this photo, next to those trees and bushes.
