“The Star is awesome...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

We loved trying to find this Park and look at the star and other things they had to offer. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes to hike and bring kids along too! It's a fun place!

“Have to see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

If you live in Roanoke or have guests, you need to see the star. Go during the day and also come back at night to see the star lit and the lights of the city

“Star City Perspective”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

If you really want to view the Star City of the South, Roanoke, you must travel up to the park and overlook the city below for a great perspective of the river, rail services and skyline.

“Great view and nice park.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

I would recommend that anyone who visits and stays a day or two in Roanoke to visit this while in town. Its a mountain basically right in downtown takes you less than a couple minutes to go to the top there is also a zoo during the day up there you should visit. But the view at night is spectacular can see the whole Roanoke Valley, the airport lights the downtown right below you etc.. Could be a nice family trip or very romantic place with the views and trails.
