Notice: There is ongoing construction on the HWY 52 bridge. Below we have provided alternate directions for the long-term closures, however, other ramps connecting to and from HWY 52 may be sporadically closed. Please plan your route carefully. Up-to-date info on the project can be found on MNDOT's website.
The Padelford Riverboats and the Centennial Showboat are both located on Harriet Island, however they are located on different sides of the park and have seperate parking lots. The difference in directions is so minor that a few of our passengers end up in the wrong place. Please keep this in mind and read the directions carefully.
Notice: The block at the intersection of Wabasha & Water St/Fillmore Ave is under construction, follow signs marking the East Entrance of Harriet Island.
