  • Very cool place with lots to see. Ascending the tower we were greeted by a swarm of wasps so we high tailed it back down. Will climb after the oncoming frost kills those buggers. Can't wait until our next visit too!!
  • This is a great place to go on the weekends! You can bike, Rollerblade, skateboard, fish, some hiking and they have this huge tower you can climb that gives a great view of Mount Vernon. There are lots of pavilions so take a picnic lunch or supper along! Its a very big park. It's well kept and lots of fun!
  • This is a great park! The old factory ruins are interesting to explore, and the tower fun to climb. The glass river is beautiful.
  • Really neat repurposed industrial building. Made for a great wedding venue.
  • I am so impressed and so proud that Mount Vernon has such a fabulous facility in our community. Ariel Foundation Park is like a mini Central Park in our lovely little city. There is so much green space, as well as interesting sculptures and structures. I'm never bored walking or riding around. And I love climbing up the smokestack. The opening ceremony and recent concerts have been great. How lucky we are!
