Designed as a festival park, the Adado Riverfront Park has wide open spaces providing plenty of room to roam. The Grand River, Michigan's longest river, bisects the park. Leisurely stroll the Lansing River Trail with beautiful parks, historic sites, urban activity centers and the Planet Walk along the winding banks of the Red Cedar and Grand Rivers. Sites along the River Trail include the Brenke River Sculpture and Fish Ladder, Turner-Dodge House, Potter Park Zoo and the Louis F. Adado Riverfront Park.
Adado Riverfront Park is home to Lansing's Common Ground Music Festival in early July each year. Common Ground hosts national acts as well as some local bands.
