Fishing for kids is free here and they can each take 2 fish. The river is stocked every Thursday so catching fish is pretty easy. Kids loved it.

Not a huge park, but great place to go with kids. My 4 and 7 year old children lived it. We spend 2 hours playing, exploring and just running around. Only complaint is there are no swings.

🎣We love everything about this city park. Our grands all love the fish farm and the the playground, as well as the ramp area. You can picnic and grill there. That's where we go to see the lightning bugs every year.

We visited this park before heading into Gatlinburg. Place wasn't packed and we got to enjoy the place to our selves. By the river we got to watch geese swim. The kids enjoyed getting their feet wet and skipping small rocks across the water.

Thought this was an excellent way too end the evening grilling hamburgers and enjoying some family time! Dogs had fun as well

We visited on Memorial Day. The park was very quiet and the kids had a great time feeding the geese, playing on the playground, and fishing. Will return.
