Deeds Point MetroPark
- Owned By
This small MetroPark provides an unobstructed and picturesque view of the downtown Dayton skyline, embraced by the beauty of nature.
It’s the perfect spot to unwind at the end of the day, watching the sunset over the city on one of the park’s swings or benches amidst floral displays. It’s also the best place to catch the giant RiverScape Fountains of Light between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
Located at the convergence of the Great Miami and Mad Rivers and the paved trails that run along them, the park is a scenic and popular stop for runners, cyclists and paddlers — not to mention local wildlife.

Great Miami River Water Trail
The Great Miami River is perfect for paddlers and offers miles of beautiful streamside forests. It was designated as a state water trail in 2010. It flows through Taylorsville, Island, Deed’s Point, RiverScape and Sunrise MetroParks as well as a few protected conservation areas. New whitewater features, called the RiverScape River Run, are further downstream downtown.
