The capitol building itself was interesting. It was so hot that we couldn't really enjoy the park much, but all the grounds look lovely.

We spent the morning on the park's mountain biking trails and had a blast! My husband is an experienced rider and I am a newbie, but we both found the trails challenging and fun.

Beautiful part of Frankfort Kentucky. We went to the front lawn area of the capital and it was during spring time when all of the thousands of tulips were in bloom & trees. Made for great pictures.

We visited this park just for the views, but found lots of other activities to do. While it's missing a playground, it does have basketball courts, and baseball, softball, soccer and football fields. There's also a 5-mile mountain biking trail that partially travels along the...More
