Longshore Park Description
Longshore Park offers a structure and swings. While the playground is in full sun, the picnic benches offer plenty of shade.
The playground features a twisty slide and a lower side-by-side slide. There are monkey bars, curved ladders, and more fun on the play structure.
Beyond Longshore Park
Longshore Park is across the street from the Argo boat launch and down the street from the Argo Canoe Livery. We parked in the Argo lot across from the boat launch.
Longshore Park also makes a great stopping point on a long walk around the river crossing at Barton and the dam at Argo. I have walked from Bandemer to Barton to Beckley Park to Argo and across the dam back to Bandemer
