A unique park where several old structures were saved from destruction including a 280 foot tall smokestack which was a spiral staircase that reaches 140 which affords a great view. Nice trails and a couple of ponds for kayaking/canoeing as well as fishing.

Loved visiting this place. Great view from the tower. We hiked around the lake. It is a very well kept Space. Loved all the benches and tables for a quiet place to get away.

Wonderful new park in the heart of Knox County Ohio. Good walks on nice paths. Lots of history here to read and discover. They also hold several concerts in the Park throughout the year.

This park has so many photo ops and so much history, go to the top of the old smoke stack and look out over the park

Who could have thunk this amazing place up? Brilliant and beautiful! The tower climb had my knees shaking but the stairs were very solid and secure didn’t wiggle at all. Can’t believe how high they are. Keep in mind the tower closes for the winter...More

Glad to see that they did something with the old rundown factory area. The "Stack" is LED lit at night and can be seen from downtown.

This park is something I have never seen anywhere. They incorporated art with parts of an old factory. Lots of great scenery and walking paths. Highly recommended
