McFarland Park is right on the Tennessee River. It has a beautiful view of the river and the bluff. This is a great place to walk, ride bikes, play Frisbee golf, or just sit and relax. There are many picnic tables or shelters along the river, and there is a campground at the end of the park.

This is a great place to walk, run, cycle---the river is on one side and a wooded area on the other. At the end is a camping area and at the beginning is a beautiful visitor's center manned by very enthusiastic and pro-Florence volunteers.

McFarland Park is one of the major parks of the Quad Cities (Florence, Muscle Shoals, Tuscumbia, Sheffield) area- be sure to check out Spring Park in Tuscumbia too. McFarland is on the Tennessee River near Downtown and hosts many of Florence's special events. There are good playgrounds, lighted walking trails, a floating restaurant, and a lighthouse. It's a very scenic... More

Beautiful park. We spent an hour there just walking down the shoreline. Great walking area and the campground looked nice as well.

This water park draws a lot of people. ..but I feel it's because there's not many choices close by. The park is a pretty place and the landscaping is great...but the water...it just doesn't ever seem to be as clear or clean as at other water parks we've visited. I don't know if it's because they need a better system... More

This is a great park, with a marina and restaurant, a small sand beach, lots of picnic tables scattered throughout, with a few pavilions with fireplaces for large gatherings, and a campground, all on the bank of the Tennessee River. We stayed in the campground 3 nights, the sites are large and paved, with pull-thrus for large rigs. I think... More

Picnic tables, lots of shade, a beach and views of the river make this a great place to spend time. If you bring some local bar b que then it is as close to southern happiness as you can find. Golfers will want to play a round on the park's 18 hole golf course.

The wife and I always enjoy a good afternoon of fishing off the bank when we have time off. The camp grounds are always clean and every body always seems in good spirits. I highly recommend it also if your just coming through the area make sure you check out the new tourism center on the right as you go... More
