West Bank Walkway Description

Although less than 1 mile long, the West Bank Walkway offers lovely views of the St. Joseph River in downtown South Bend. Midway, a converted railroad trestle over the waterway connects trail-goers to Howard Park, which offers restrooms, picnic areas, a recreation center and connections to both the Northside Trail and East Bank Trail. The West Bank Walkway ends in the small, but scenic Plaza Park, which contains a pavilion, playground and fishing spots.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the West Bank Walkway is available in Howard Park (219 S. St. Louis Boulevard).
