Beckwourth Riverfront Park is named after James Beckwourth, an emancipated slave who discovered the lowest elevation pass through the Sierra Nevadas, leading the first wagon train (and ultimately thousands of immigrants) into Marysville in 1851 during a critical time of the town’s growth. Today, the park hosts concerts and sporting events that draw thousands of participants.
