The Coal Heritage Riverwalk is part public park and part history lesson. Alongside two picnic shelters, a stage, green space, and riverfront walking trail, are interpretive signs detailing the town's rich coal heritage. The focal point of the park is a restored caboose that serves as a walkthrough museum. The park is located 200 feet from the Upper Big Branch Miners Memorial.
