“Nice place to relax”

Fisherman's Park Dam
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 October 2017

Fisherman's Park, is a decent place to fish or just relax. Due to the swift current is IS NOT a safe area to swim.

I don't know if you'd call this a "park". It's a nice little area for taking a short stroll. Apparently it is the locals' spot for fishing and taking a dip. Otherwise, the dam is soothing to watch and nice for pictures. We could see a paved walk path on the other side of the water, but could not find how to get to it. We gave up. Also, it's right next to a busy noisy highway.

Fisherman's Park is a nice area with concrete picnic tables overlooking the Duck River spillway. Located across the river on Hwy 231 just past the historic downtown square heading south. It's not unusual to find folks enjoying bank fishing below the spillway. Nice place to bring your eats or icecream and let the water soothe your inner soul. There's another area behind the historic downtown square on the opposite side of the river with concrete walking area along the river was well.

Fun to watch the fisherman or just watch the water. Really good after a heavy rain. City does a good job keeping it clean.

The dam area would be pretty for pictures. We walked down the river/creek for a bit following along the edge and going on some paths through the trees. I spoke with a couple of folks out there and apparently it is a pretty good spot for bass fishing. It is pretty trashed though, there were beer cans everywhere down the side of the waterway.
