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.

Joe Ford Nature Park Reviews & Ratings
Took grandkids and they had a great time exploring outside and all of the interesting items inside. Fun and educational!
Looks like a cool little place. Unfortunately I went on a day they were closed. Will definitely be going back.
beautiful walking and biking trails with labeled plants along the way, a must see
I like that the trees and plants are identified along the hiking trails, but traffic can be constantly heard.
Great area for quiet time
