  • 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.
