It is a great place to take a walk and go fishing and have a family picknick.
Quite place from everyday traffic. Very relaxing. Clean.

This park is a beautiful and peaceful outdoor area to eat lunch, take a walk with or without a pet, and enjoy the outdoors. This was a pleasant discovery in the midst of Mount Vernon, Ohio.

This project of repurposing the ruins of the old PPG factory is a marvel. There are ponds for fishing and canoeing. There are paths for walking or biking. There are buildings to rent for weddings or private parties. The museum in the Old Clock House shows the history of Knox county industry and the grounds now made into a lovely park. The pavilions can be reserved for events and the Schnormeir Event Pavilion offers a great venue for concerts and other big attractions like movies and celebrations. The smoke stack was turned into an observation tower with steps to climb and beautiful views of Mount Vernon and Knox county. Free for your enjoyment year-round. Many event admissions are free or modestly priced. . Be there for the 4th of July and the fireworks. We are so proud and so grateful to have this wonderful facility in our community.

Park offers great area to walk. Fishing is easy access. The lake has some good size crappie caught after dark. Easy access for ice fishing though there are a couple areas on the right pond I would avoid. During the spring, summer, and fall boats with trolling motor or oaks allowed, but you have to hand load.
