Park Features

Park Entrance

The park entrance road extends from the toll booth for a quarter of a mile. A turnaround was constructed in 1912 as streetcars brought picnickers from downtown. On that spot today a large eagle statue and circular flower bed welcome you to Eagle Point Park.

Trolley Line Trail

This one-half-mile paved bike / hike trail follows the route of the original streetcar service to the park from the Ham House Museum parking lot to the turnaround, with a rest area including artwork at the midpoint of the trail.

Spray Pool

The spray pool is open during park hours, weather permitting.

Rock Garden and Fish Pond

The rock garden and fish pond were also built as part of the Works Progress Administration project, and are made of limestone. A handicapped-accessible walk extends north from the riverfront pavilion to the fish pond, avoiding the steep rock steps along the way.


Pavilions are available by reservation. Browse Eagle Point Park pavilions!
