Went biking on the trail. Nice views of river and other scenery. Different types of trees are identified throughout the trail. Additionally, the trail has distance markers throughout. Very easy trail to bike as the paved section is completely flat. The actual map lists the mileage at 11 however, it appears not to be complete yet as my wife and... More

Nice place to walk, run, just get out for a little while. Needs more security, gets a little unsafe sometimes, but overall a good place to relax and enjoy nature.

This park is a wonderful way to walk along the riverfront in downtown Macon and view the Ocmulgee river. The Ocmulgee is a little appreciated river that winds through Macon from Jackson Lake where is begins. It is the drinking source for Macon and a pleasant stroll along its shores awaits you. Great place to walk, jog, or ride bikes.... More

Been here a number of time. This is a nice place to take the kids on a little walk or short bike ride. There is a little park with swings etc for the kids to play. Pretty safe during the day but gets a little iffy at evening. The bums start to show up as the sun goes down.

If it is not blistering hot, this is a great place to take the family and enjoy the day. There are walking trails and bike paths in addition to the other amenities. If nothing else it is a great place for a picnic.

There is a fountain near the statue that children can play in and the Spring Street entrance has a nice playground. There were benches and picnic tables but I think those have been... More

Nice level path to run (I think about 3 miles round trip) that felt safe to this traveler. I parked at north end on cul de sac of a neighborhood. Parking lot on Spring St. has porta pottys for those of us with small bladders. :)
