Hoover Reservoir Park is a beautiful place to spend some time. There are a good number of people jogging, playing disc golf on the course there, and walking solo, with dogs and with kids yet there is plenty of room for social distancing. Theres also lots to see including boats and kayaks on the water, birds, and greenery. Our 2 year old also enjoyed the small playground and the geese and ducks in that area. A word of warning, the majority of the park is open to direct sunlight and it can get quite hot on warm, sunny days. Parking is free in the lot at the entrance.

A great place to walk around. Lush green and water makes it beautiful. Two way walk in the bridge is about 1 mile. There are plenty of walking tracks off the bridge. Very clean and well maintained. We went on an evening, it was a nice walk in the cool breeze and a sight of seagulls, ducks was delightful.

Great place to train outside! The area is beautiful, the water and open areas keep a gentle breeze blowing the whole time youre there. The 100+ step staircase is why so many go there to workout. Not to mention they have a play area for the children and lots of areas to relax and sit.

Hoover Reservoir Park is a great place to take the family to walk around, play disc golf, and have a picnic. The kiddos enjoy running around and adventuring. The beautiful scenery make this a great location in Central Ohio for family photos. We highly recommend.

It never fails to impress how this marvel not only supplies.water to the city and surrounding area but offers so much recreational value to the public. We have enjoyed the fishing here many times and kids seem to love looking at the spillway. For the athlete the steps up the side of the dam from the spillway up.to the top are a create cardio work out. So if you want to picnic or just take a leisurely walk this is the place to go. If you go stop by one of the many bait shops, get some snacks, make sure your fishing license is good and go and have a great time. Its a great place to boat too so go have fun.

I enjoy coming here and watching the boats - also fun to walk along the shoreline and gather shells. If you go closer to the Marina, there are a lot of geese but further down in the fishing areas it is very peaceful and no crowd!

Great place to bike, play disc golf, jog, or take the dog on a walk.Theres marked trails that lead down to the water. An ideal place to watch the sunset during the summer and early fall days. Often have ran into other people down by the water, whether its another dog owner or a group of friends playing guitar around a little campfire, everyone seems to be in good spirits and relatively happy.

Great place to walk for leisure - water, trees, sailboats. Great place to exercise - serious steps for a cardio workout. There are picnic tables and shelters, a multi-use walking / biking path, a playground, and a flying disc golf course.But I like sitting at a picnic table, watching the water, and contemplating life.

Review №54

They have made horrible changes to the frisbee golf course over the years. The last straw for me was letting the grass in the middle of 2-7 hole grow way out of hand it makes it very hard for my kids to play. I do just fine but the grass really makes it hard to track discs

Review №71

Parking was blocked on the non-Westerville side of the dam, so you had to park on the side of the road. Which is super annoying, but at least it is still open. I think they are just trying to limit the number of people that way for covid-19. Lots of people playing frisbee golf. It has nice long and beautiful trials to to walk or job. Obviously, great views of the water on both side as well.

Sadly not what it was about 30 years ago. They traded open space for enjoyng picnics and games for parking lots and jogging tracks. The green spaces were over grown. I was disappointed.

Nice to walk around and across the Hoover Dam. Great place to take pictures and enjoy the nature that is all around the dam. Was very peaceful the day we were there. I would guess it is a favorite place for the locals to walk and walk dogs. Was extremely clean and nice. Very nice parking lot.

Ive been going to Hoover Reservoir Park since I was a child, never had a bad time here. The disc golf course is pretty good and theres ample space for traditional park activities like cooking out and such. Lots of area to walk around and enjoy nature. You can walk across the reservoir, fish and sail. Just a really good park to visit!

Not as much “trail” as we were anticipating from our research. Very urban and very crowded. Not clear signage on where to park or where the paths are. Great if you want some hill / step work though. Plus these raccoons fishing were pretty entertaining!
