Atkinson Park - Hays Boat Ramp

Hays Boat Ramp provides access to the Ohio River.

Henderson, Kentucky

Henderson, Kentucky’s Atkinson Park includes a mile-long riverwalk overlooking the Ohio River, but residents now can experience the river more directly, thanks to the Federal Lands to Parks program. The former U.S. Army Corps of Engineers facility is now the Hays Boat Ramp, transferred cost-free to the City of Henderson, complete with boat launching ramp, a fishing dock, parking area, restrooms, picnic area, and grassy open space overlooking the river.
