Very calm & peaceful park with the river flowing through! Make sure to bring your camera for some great photos! We just happened to come across this park while looking for a Dr's office & we decided to stop! It's a beautiful park & really nice! Perfect place for a family picnic or to stop for a break whil traveling! There was a bridge going across the river & it was very nice! I got some great photos of my daughter while exploring the park! Would stop here again & enjoy the beauty & peaceful environment! To me when we found the park it was like a hidden treasure!

Nice place to go for a walk, small hike, picnics and to play in the water. Fun to go to the Eno Festival and check out the museum and the mill. Easy to get to at the drop of the hat for a last minute date night!

My family and I have been going on adventures in this park for ten years and it never fails to amaze. Between the trails, sand art, tiny lizards running around, and the river there is always something to do. Some people swim in the water, I wouldn't advise that but kayaking or canoeing is reasonable. In addtion, the park volunteers give lessons and tours. Great free family fun!!!

One of several ways to access the Eno River. Great place for hiking and access to a slow meandering river. Can take dogs on a leash and children, too!

More than just a park, the photography museum, house and mill add a lot. Walks are fairly easy but hilly. Kids can splash in the river. Access to several trails. Kayak access. Fun all seasons.
