  • Beautiful views of the river and downtown Dayton. Love the swings along the bike path. Perfect to chill with your honey after a walk together. The bridges have lights that look amazing at night! The fountains go off every hr and sometimes they are lit up as well! Dayton is not only strong, but beautiful as well.
  • Great getaway in downtown with awesome views of the river from one of the many relaxing bench swings. There are nicely maintained plants and water fountains to mask the sights and sounds of the surrounding city. During summer there is a small splash pad for kids and a lot of patio tables for parents to sit and watch. There are 2 Cafe's and public restrooms. This is easily accessible from the multi-use trail system.
