For my purpose of jogging, I prefer the small level dirt trail in the Corydon battlefield, but for most group outings, this is nice. It is a large park with lots to offer, too much to list. And a great variety.

Has nice long loop trail, very well-respected woods and water. Dogs welcome on leash (all that I have met there have been well-mannered). Playground area for little kids.

Our kids love the multiple playgrounds and even some of the older equipment, like the merry-go-round. There are lots of spots to have a picnic or you can bring charcoal and cook out on one of the many grills located throughout the park.
