I have been to Walker Park more times then I can count and I must say that each time I go I am disappointed more and more. At one time this park was in wonderful shape. There use to be lots of playground equipment for kids to play on. Now they have only one or two pieces of equipment that the kids can use. The last time I was there the grass was almost knee high and the part of the park that is 'under the hill' was mostly mud. The shelter here was very dirty, used condoms in the stone fireplace and all over the picnic area. I don't think they ever clean under the hill. The upper shelter always seems to be in good conditon. They have a nice basketball court and the putt putt is pretty fun. The replica of the house is still in great shape too. The gift shop they have is mostly over priced stuff that you could find in any Wal-mart. I think this park could be a wonderful tourist attraction for the city of Barbourville, if someone would just take the time to put a little hard work and money into the place. I will still go here, because I have many fond memories from when I was a little girl, but my heart aches just a little more each time I go.
