Amerson River Park is a 160+ acre park featuring 4+ miles of trails, a playground, multiple pavilions, river overlooks and access, outdoor gym equipment, large open lawns, and more. Work continues to expand the trail north from the Overlook to the Canoe Launch and south to connect to historic cemeteries, the Ocmulgee Heritage Trail, and the Ocmulgee National Historic Park.

“We're still dancing thanks to the love people in our community and region have for Amerson River Park,” says Parks & Beautification Director Sam Kitchens. “With all the amenities, it will be easy for people to take and post pictures of what they love most about this amazing space."

In its third year, the Knope Awards recognize local government places, and this year, they are honoring local parks. (In previous years, the recognized libraries and city halls.) The competition is modeled after March Madness, and Amerson River Park has made it to the Elite 8 where they face White Deer Park in Garner, NC. The only way for Amerson to move to the Final Four is for people to cast their vote in favor of it and to post their selfies with the hashtag #ELGLKnope.
