  • Beautiful small park with some interesting artifacts. The bench swings make taking in the views of the rivers very relaxing. There is running water in the restrooms, but it wasn't exactly pristine in there. Overall, this was worth the stop, even though the museum on site was not open. (It opens May 1st.)
  • Beautiful view of 2 bridges & the Ohio River. Nice place to take a stroll on a nice day & enjoy the outdoors. Also a great place to take pictures. I've seen & heard of several couples weddings take place here.
  • Stopped in to eat my lunch abd just enjoy the weather. It's a great spot to slow down and just watch river traffic go by.
  • Great history lesson. Awesome views of the Ohio River and various monuments. Nice swings to sit on and just relax by the river. We make it a point to stop by the point before we go home every year after our family reunion.
  • Really nice park. Beautiful views of the Ohio river. There is a riverboat museum just across the street.
