I had driven through this park as a child and was delighted to experience it again as an adult. It felt like a state park setting nestled right in the Youngstown area. Amazing! There are walking paths right along the water, a golf course, and at least two dams. We drove through near dusk, but still saw cranes, and it... More

This was a short trip to see the falls after heavy rains. The falls did not disappoint. The covered bridge and the mill were very nice. Pavement near the falls parking area needs resurfacing.

This is a remarkable park situated in the city of Youngstown. Plenty of hiking trails, lakes, gardens, biking, and family activities. A real treasure. We are so fortunate to have a park like this. We go several times per month in every season.

Great place to see a well maintained park. Very green in spring and summer, beautiful changing colors of trees in the fall.

This park is truly a beautiful natural escape. Multiple great hiking paths that do not get old. Just try it once. I bet you will want to go back! There are two 18 hole championship golf courses that are quite challenging and a par 3 course. Bring your clubs you won't want to miss out.

This is a really nice park in the middle of the city. However you would never know that it was in the city. There are a lot of lakes and hiking trails to go on, be sure to check out the mill located near the center of the park.
