“Great place for a walk!”

Paradise Spring Historical Park & Riverwalk
Ranked #4 of 12 things to do in Wabash
Attraction details
Reviewed May 31, 2013

This is an awesome place to take a walk - or jog - or to walk your doggie! Very pretty, with historical little buildings you can read stuff about. There are several events that take place throughout the year here. Best is the Chili cookoff - that's just an amazing time! It's around the 3rd week of October every year - over 100 tents set up with chili tastings! and it's only $5 admission to taste all the chili you can eat. Can't beat that!

Our family loves to picnic here on a regular basis. THis also our go to spot for practicing some catch with the kids or a little soccer b/c its so quiet here. We sled here in the winter too. The chili cook off, herb fest and tractor days are all really fun for the whole family. We also really like that the walk has been expanded now down to walk along the side of the river. Theonly drawback is that due to poor city planning the water treatment plant is close to the down town area andcan lend a certain perfume to the area. Over all very pretty and open grassy area.

Hoosiers aren't typically "walkers." They're more of a drive to the mailbox sort of people. So this creating a walking path thing is sort of new territory if you will. However, this is a nice attempt to add some sort of healthy activity to your repertoire, or a healthy respite from all the pizza king pizza and hogies you just consumed downtown. Parking is avaliable, but they do discourage driving your car on the trail.

Wabash hosts a great herb festival and a chili cook-off on this property. You can still see the remains of the old roundhouse that once sat on this site.
