Everyone can enjoy River Park's environmentally sensitive 70 acres on the pristine Catawba River. Several miles of wooded trails, including handicapped accessible trails, wander through the park and along the scenic river. You can enjoy a picnic while observing plants, birds and animals in a peaceful undisturbed setting. Added to the trail was a connector that connects River Park to the Piedmont Medical Center Trail which allows miles of beautiful wilderness enjoyment. Beginning at Highway 21 to the lower parking lot of River Park, there is 3.35 miles of trail to enjoy. Remember the total mileage provided is only one way, so make sure to have a plan if you don't plan to walk the whole trail. River Park is also the perfect setting to learn about the delicate balance between man and our natural resources. Frequent visitors to the park include scout troops and school groups. River Park is the location for many of the Environmental Education classes offered by PRT including the Leopold Education Project. Paddling enthusiasts make use of the kayak/ canoe access for outings with friends or for planned paddles through PRT��_��__s popular Paddling Program. As the park continues to grow, the unique natural habitat will always be respected.
