The Flint River snakes through Flushing, crossing Main Street just west of Maple and north of the entrance to the Riverwalk, one of the community's favorite running, biking, hiking, and walking paths. This scenic trail follows the river south of Main Street Bridge to Riverview Park and beyond. While smaller than Flushing County Park, which is located north of downtown, Riverview has its merits, including the band shell amphitheater, which plays host to the annual Flushing Concerts in the Park Series. The park's open layout and proximity to downtown make it a perfect venue for community gatherings like socials, city picnics, and small festivals.
