The Joe Ford Nature Park came into being in 1998, commemorating Joe Ford who made a classroom out of a 15 acre wooded area. The park acts as a base on your trip to Adkisson Greenbelt Park through the West Owensboro Trail. There is a nature centre on the park that operates from Tuesday till Friday. During the daytime you can explore the walking trails around the park spanning around a mile. Through the jungle you will encounter lots of birds such as owls and nightjars and small mammals. If you wish to have a picnic session, there are shaded areas with picnic tables and grills.
