Was passing through and decided to stop in and see what Pt. Pleasant was about other than the Mothman. Came to the park and was not disappointed at all in regards to the history that is around the area.

Gorgeous breezy park on the confluence of the Ohio and Kanawha rivers where you can sit and watch barges. Has interesting historical monuments and accounts of battles held near there. It is down the street from the mothman statue, and near the riverwalk. A lovely, dreamy place to be in Pt. Pleasant. Easy to park.
