With the weather warming up, Warren County has many parks for people to take a walk, play a sport, or just relax. Here are the Herald’s picks for the five best parks in Warren County.
Kereiakes Park, just a ten minute drive from campus, has something for just about everyone. With a 1.25 mile jogging trail, an 18-hole disc golf course, an outdoor basketball court and more, it’s easy to spend hours at this close-to-home park.

Along with the view, Hospital Hill has a playground, a shelter with picnic tables, and a walking trail. The park can be found by simply driving towards the iconic red, white, and blue water tower.
