Run, walk or swing

Great paths for running, walking, or bike riding. Swings Along the walk to sit and relax and enjoy the view. If you cross the river their are more trails and swings.

The fountains, greenery and activity here is just rite. Fun for kids of all ages. Nice to relax in the swings to river watch. Parking can be tricky but not that bad depending on when you go. This is really a nice touch to the downtown area and well worth a visit.

Love what they are trying to do downtown. This area is clean and pretty. When the fountains go off at the top of the hour, it is downright amazing. There are swings to sit on and watch. Too bad the snack areas and bike rentals, etc. Are closed on a hot summer evening. It really seems if you are going... More

RiverScape MetroPark is perfect for a sunny day. Swings overlooking the river. Nice wide walkways. Small water-play area for kids. And a concession stand open seasonally. During the Winter months, they have ice skating and the concession stand is open for hot chocolate and other treats.

We visited Dayton in mid-April and apparently there had been flooding along the Miami River. I tried to walk on the path at river level but it was partially washed away and I wound up walking on the streets above the river. It's an interesting downtown neighborhood with a very nice little park celebrating the inventors of Dayton, including the... More

A very nice place to take a walk or just sit on a bench during a lunch break from a downtown office. It has fountains for the kids in the summer and ice skating in the winter.

We visited this park on our trip to Dayton- expected more but since it was only March- there was not much going on. None of the water features where on and nothing was open.
