A good place to begin your journey on the East Bank Walkway is Howard Park, which offers views of the St. Joseph River, restrooms, picnic areas and a recreation center. You'll continue north on a tree-dotted route through downtown's East Bank Village. A crossing over the South Bend Dam provides access to Seitz Park, which overlooks the East Race Waterway, a manmade route paralleling Niles Avenue for kayaking, whitewater rafting and innertubing.
From its northern end, you can continue north a short distance to St. Joseph's High School via the East Bank Trail
Parking is available in Howard Park (219 S. St. Louis Boulevard) and Seitz Park (south of E. Colfax Avenue/US Business Route 20).
