  • We didn't realize that the river was up so much that some of the structures were just out of the water and the steps went down to the water rather than ground! It is a very nice complex and worth a.....  more »

  • Beautiful views of the river and downtown Dayton. Love the swings along the bike path. Perfect to chill with your honey after a walk together. The bridges have lights that look amazing at night! The fountains go off every hr and sometimes they are lit up as well! Dayton is not only strong, but beautiful as well.
  • Great getaway in downtown with awesome views of the river from one of the many relaxing bench swings. There are nicely maintained plants and water fountains to mask the sights and sounds of the surrounding city. During summer there is a small splash pad for kids and a lot of patio tables for parents to sit and watch. There are 2 Cafe's and public restrooms. This is easily accessible from the multi-use trail system.
  • Seems kinda silly to rate it 5-stars and write a good review for a normal, everyday place in downtown Dayton. But I visited for the Dayton Celtic Festival and I was not disappointed. Good food, good entertainment, and vendors galore. If you haven't been, I highly suggest going next year.
  • Went to a concert here. It was my first time here. It is really beautiful to be in the "middle" of downtown. Super gorgeous. I didn't go down to the river this time as it was getting a little late. I will definitely have to come back here.
  • Enjoyed The Tom Daughtry Orchestra. Thank you for providing chairs. We will bring our own next time. The concert was very entertaining. Loved seeing so many people enjoying the park . Also enjoyed meeting new friends. Great for our city.
