Hideaway Harbor Park is a 48-acre riverside park, featuring spectacular views of the Mississippi River and the scenic Alton bluffs. With two free public boat ramps to access the river, it's become a very popular site for many fisherman and recreational boaters year round. The park contains a variety of historic and natural features and was part of a flood buy-out, opening to the public in May 2002. The parks' natural wetlands and forested areas are also visually inspiring. In addition to the Mississippi River, Hideaway Harbor Park also features Webber Lake, a 12-acre lake with a spacious fishing doc that is ADA accessible for easy access.

Birders also delight in the close-up views of the wildlife, including the American Bald Eagles that roost in and around the park each winter. The Parks Department hosts an annual Bald Eagle Winter Watch in February to celebrate the arrival of our national icon to the area. This popular Eagle program allows park guests the opportunity to learn why these magnificent birds continue to return every winter. It also features several educational hands-on birding activities for the public to participate in. Through spotting scopes and binoculars, spectators have a chance to see Bald Eagles nesting along the mighty Mississippi River or possibly witness spectacular views of these majestic birds in flight as they feed off the open river waters.
