A treadmark place to visit in Roanoke

The drive to the place is awesome, specially in the night. The view of downtown Roanoke from the star is also great to watch.

Great views of Downtown Roanoke and the surrounding areas. Short hike from the parking lot to the star and a small playground for the children.

Overall, it's a good place to spend an hour or so. There is the Roanoke Mountain Picnic area close by and it is on the way to Explore park. As far as exhibits go, like the Zoo, save your time.

This was a great trip for my son and me. The park is very well laid out and worked out great for my toddler and me to walk around, enjoy the views, and see plenty of things. The wildflower garden was our favorite. It was very shady and cool, some beautiful plants, and the fish pond was a hit with... More

We drive up to the Star every time we visit Roanoke. Go at night. Star is beautiful lit up. Great view. Kids insist we go to the Star each visit.

5 minute drive from downtown Roanoke, amazing and expansive view of the Valley, a couple short hikes available, and a sweet children's zoo, if you have time. Plus, you usually meet nice people up there. Take some time to look at the frame behind the famous Star.

Nice view of Roanoke and the greater Appalachian Valley. The area is surrounded by hiking trails that look like quite a work-out; unfortunately, I did not come equipped with the right clothing and shoes to hike. Great place for a photo-op with the family, especially at sunset.
