  • I went really early in the morning so there's not a lot of people around at the time. It was a nice walk along the edge of the river, there were swings located around and it was very near the downtown...  more »

  • Beautiful downtown park that has a host of amenities. There are bike rentals in the summer and ice skating in the winter. If you're a bike commuter they have a private members only locker room. They have a great outdoor pavilion that hosts concerts in the summer and the ice rink in the winter. They are constantly adding events to their calendar which makes it a great place to find entertainment no matter the season.
  • One of the many parks in the MetroPark system, RiverScape is a great location in Dayton to go visit. Paths run along both sides of the river; a water-jet shooting park lets kids run around during hot summer days. The paths are long enough to recreational 5k race, or short enough to just enjoy a conversation with a friend. I didn't feel threatened or scared walking around the area. A must see/do if you're visiting Downtown Dayton.
  • Food stands, kids playing in fountains, great music, nice setting by the water. The walkway/sidewalk was beautiful with flowering plants. First time I've been there, well done Dayton!
  • Great place to hang out. You can walk, bike, or even have some fun in a kayak here. Nice family atmosphere​. There are are also lots of pokestops and gyms for pokemon go players.
  • Great place to lay out on a blanket with my wife and enjoy the sun! And when we get to hot we get in the fountains to cool off.
