Nice park along the Cumberland River just a lime ride away. Has a city owned golf course thats inexpensive but mediocre. Park has picnic tables etc but beyond that is green space but no major landmarks.

This is a beautiful urban park that borders the Cumberland River with great walking trails, picnic areas, ball fields. It is very quiet and peaceful and is well maintained.

The park is very safe with lots of wildlife to see. We saw deer on the golf course, snakes in the pond, turtles, lots of mallards, birds and small fish. The walk was very comfortable and the parking was great.

This park is a very large walking park, that has some aviary spots, and in general is a great place to jog, ride a bike, and walk your dog. Not much else to say as its a park!

The park is expansive. We went there to see our grandson play baseball. That was our main focus and I cannot comment on the art.
