Riverside Dam near north pedestrian bridge
From US 2, take Mill Road north and turn right onto Red Dot Pl (see on Map). Access to the Dam is just ahead on the left. The pedestrian bridge just north of the dam provides linkage between the North Dakota and Minnesota sides of the Greenway.
In summer, the bridge is an excellent place to see Cliff and Barn Swallows, and perhaps a Belted Kingfisher. In winter, the largest area of open water in the area occurs here and should attract the occasional rarity, especially as wetlands and lakes of the area begin to freeze over.
A nearby nesting pair of Bald Eagles can show up anywhere along the Red River for most of the year. During migration, Osprey also visit this area.
