Radnor Lake State Park
The Historic Valve House Trail opened in 2011 to walk visitors through the history of the area. From 1914 to 1917, Louisville and Nashville Railroad Company had a dam constructed on Otter Creek. This dam led to the creation of Radnor Lake, which supplied water for L&N's steam locomotives.
Stop by the Walter Criley Visitor Center on the west end of the park to learn more about the area. Since 2015, the Barbara J. Mapp Aviary Education Center has been open to the public, introducing visitors to birds of prey such as bald eagles and great horned owls. The Lake Trail is accessible to people with all-terrain wheelchairs. Pets, jogging and bicycles are permitted only on the Otter Creek Road trail.
