The park is adjacent to the White River. It has river access for canoes and kayaks and other small crafts. There is a lovely biking path that has even a pumping station with tools available for your bike. There are lovely wildflowers, open spaces also, a Native American interactive exhibit and some things for the kids to climb on also.

Great place for just about anything. Lots of green space, paved trail, river access for water sports. There is also a small interactive area with information about the Indians and pre-historic people who settled the land. Really neat place, very quiet and peaceful.

There was one sign, along a well-travelled path that was not paved, that warned about intrusion onto private property, but we could not figure out what... More

An ok way to take a walk along the shoreline of the White River as it courses through Hamilton County.

We have had several group picnics at this park. The location is a bit secluded and the large covered picnic area is perfect for a group. There are bathrooms and water fountains and the shelter is equipped with two grills. The park also has sand volley ball courts and play areas. A walk will take you to the banks of... More

Parking for about 50+ vehicles. There is a picnic pavilion too. The walking trails are next to the river and there are some in the field next to the park. Not... More

This is a linear park along the while river. Great for a walk, run or bike ride. Approximately 2 miles in one direction. Lots of dog walkers. Space for soccer, baseball or throwing a frisbee to your dog. There is a bridge over a small creek that is nice and a natural area. There is a playground area for small... More
