With the warmer weather and the sunny days, I’m pretty sure everyone is itching to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible. And one of the best places in Findlay to do that? Riverside Park, of course! With spring in full bloom, this is probably the best time to spend an afternoon in this beautiful park. 

Riverside Park

 

From walking down one of the trails to running around with your kids on the playgrounds, you can experience a little bit of everything the great outdoors has to offer you at Riverside Park. I personally love just sitting on one of the park benches by the Blanchard River and daydreaming. Amazingly, that activity actually inspired one of the most popular songs of the early 20th century. Tell Taylor sat on the banks of river as he wrote “Down by the Old Mill Stream,” and you can actually find a memorial to Tell Taylor on those banks.

Do you want to actually get on the river? Zonta Landing Boat Rentals will help you out with that from the end of May to Labor Day. For as little as $5, you can rent a canoe, kayak or paddle boat to check out what makes the Blanchard River and Findlay special. 

Or if you need a gorgeous location for a family gathering, you can rent one of the many pavilions located throughout the park. With so many activities constantly going on at the park, there are many ways to bond with all of your loved ones.
