OHT- Spring Street Landing
Spring Street Landing is often thought of as where the Trail begins. Right off of the Spring Street Bridge, just before you get to the interstate ramp, Spring Street Landing is on your right. Here you will find a playground, public art, and a boat ramp where canoes, kayaks and tubes can take out. This is the southernmost public take-out before you reach Hawkinsville.
Henry Burns Park
Located in Ingleside this quaint little playground is one of those spots that you think no one else knows about! There's nothing fancy about it, but located near IVP its the perfect spot to let the kids burn some calories after a big pizza dinner. The park also has public tennis courts.
Located on Upper River Road, Liberty Park is worth the drive. With big wide grassy areas for kids to run free as well as a large playground Liberty Park is a tired parents haven. The gazebo within sight of the play area offers a way for parents to stay in the shade while the kids climb, slide and swing the day away.
