Here is a review from an user.
This is a great place to get information and find out about community services. I recommend.
Seneca Park is wonderful! There is a good golf course, riding trails, marked off walking and running trails. Hiking areas, sledding areas, softball fields, tennis and basketball courts, picnic areas, lots of trees and open areas. Nice restrooms in a couple places.
What a lovely, new, natural park in Clifton Heights with a hilly trail that loops around. Follow the trail 3 times for a 1-mile easy hike with slight hills. An abundance of native plants, birds, and landscape. The trail has a few mini bridges. It was beautiful in the Fall and by the layout of the park, I'm sure each season will show off different features. Not wheelchair accessible unless you are an off-road specialist. Personally, I could get a double stroller around the course with a few difficult spots. An adventure for an umbrella stroller and definitely doable. My only concern was a very large Doberman who barked at us from a yard where the trail turns to head back to the start -- about 3/4ths of the way. I expected the yard had an electronic fence, but the very large Doberman barked as it wandered into the brush. Then it was on the trail barking about feet behind us. I don't think it was aggressive, more curious, but I didn't make any sudden moves. My small Chihuahua-Dachshund mix was fairly concerned. My almost deaf, old-man Border Collie even heard the very large Doberman bark. I wasn't waiting to see if the very large Doberman wanted to play. Perhaps the very large Doberman is really a marshmallow ...
It's okay if you just want to walk around in a circle, there's a couple of benches but nothing else, could really use an update, maybe a playground and some picnic tables
Good water ride with huge splash
Deep Water Dive is one of the most intense body slides Kentucky Kingdom has to offer. Also for quite a couple years, it held the world record for tallest body slide in North America. Although, it is short it offers a very intense ride. This slide offers some great “floater” airtime and the fact you can get airtime off of a slide is nuts. This thing is a pure adrenaline machine, and if you’re a thrillseeker, coaster enthusiast, or waterpark enthusiast this one is for you. ProSlide nailed this Skybox like they do with all their slides. Come to Kentucky Kingdom and try Deep Water Dive to experience a pure thrilling experience. To this day, I consider it a slide credit and even rank it above some of the coasters at the park.
The Christensen Fountain (or Belknap Watering Trough) in Cherokee Park is much bigger than you might realize when passing from the road. It was designed in as a watering trough for carriage and riding horses of the day. The overall design is meant to suggest the memorial stone piles erected in Scandinavia during the Viking Age and features a viking warship with the head of a dragon.
Beautiful quiet place to be at home
Has a piece of the World Trade Center.
Hard not to like beautiful waterfront parks! Worth coming down here for a stroll, sit, or picnic.
