Nestled along the wooded banks of Yellow Creek at Thurston, Kentucky. Yellow Creek Park provides a picturesque multi-faceted 152 1/2 acres of recreational and leisure challenges. The acreage features hiking trails, multi-purpose sport areas, a one room refurbished school house, as well as a swinging bridge, outdoor pavilions with playground equipment, a spray park, restrooms and an area of historic artifacts as depicted in our picnic tables and rustic seating. These tables were made of huge limestone blocks that were quarried long before the Cival War.The park also boasts two reconstructed covered bridges over Yellow Creek and a restored iron bridge circa 1800's that once spanned Panther Creek. This bridge serves as an elegant entrance to a 51 1/2 acre nature explorer's dream.
