Consisting of 40 acres of grassland, 1 acre lake, 2.7 miles of walking trails and six buildings, Jeffers Bend once housed the Hopkinsville Water Treatment Plant.

The facility now offers nature trails, a windmill-aerated lake, bird observatory, amphitheater, welcome center and environmental classrooms. Herb and butterfly gardens are maintained by volunteers and a new children's garden allows kids from nearby neighborhoods to plant and grown their vegetables.
