Location of an awesome two day music festival to support the MuleyFanatics Foundation! Beautiful setting along the Green River with walking paths, river access and shade trees. The park is well tended.

Peaceful place to walk or sit and unwind, enjoy the river, and the scenery. The park was clean and quiet. Restroom facilities were portable toilets.

While I would not plan my day around a visit here, it is a very nice park. There’s a couple of bridges you can walk across to look at the water and it’s a good place to take a nice stroll.

Loved the walk along the river, very pretty and peaceful. They have painted rocks, you are to pick up & re-hide for others to find, which I'm taking mine to Missouri to hide for others to find. Great place to visit & it's free.
