  • My favorite park to visit. I've been there a 100 times easy and never get bored. When the river is low, you can walk across to Bluegrass Island. The whole area is Rich in history. I used to go there sometimes daily and always found something new to see and take pictures of. I always felt very safe there as well.
  • I absolutely love this park! During summer, river is low, and there is an island you can walk across the dried river bed to. Amazing trails. Very clean! Highly recommended this place! Also have old historical water locks, that are way cool.
  • One of my favorite metroparks. There are benches by the river to relax and have lunch. There is a place area for the kids. There are some nice trails for walking. The road that cuts down by the river is very scenic when on the motorcycle.
  • We live within walking distance. Love this park and all of its attributes.
  • We went sledding and it was awesome. I love that the metro parks have given us a safe place to enjoy summer and winter activities.
