This park, located in the heart of downtown Dayton is a great place to start a bike ride. They also have an interactive fountain for kids to play in. In the winter, the pavilion is transformed into an Ice Skating Rink

You can fish on the river, rent peddle boats, cycle on the bike path, and ice skate in the winter. The big festival every on the 4th of July has some great food also.

It was a clear, beautiful day for a walk. We enjoyed the new paved trails, crossed and recrossed the bridges. There were many information signs referring to the inventor's trail which was part of the walk.

Rode through this plaza while riding the numerous paved bike trails in the Dayton area. So nice and so very well done. I can only imagine the summer activities are numerous and fun. What an attribute for the city of Dayton!

The heart of RiverScape is a big white permanent pavilion. Every other Thursday night in the summer, the Metroparks puts on a Big Band night. Live swing music, people dancing, people bringing lawn chairs just to watch and listen. On weekends, you can find Celtic...More

MetroPark is a great way to spend summer whether just swinging and reading or enjoying a festival. There are permanent porch type swings facing the water. Good for conversation, meditation or, again, reading. Kids love running through the water area. There is a snack shop...More
