Waverly Park

About this Park

Not far from the infamous Waverly Hills Sanatorium and adjacent to Bobby Nichols Golf course you’ll find Waverly Park.  This natural area has much to offer those who wind their way along its entry road.

It possesses a scenic 5-acre fishing lake that is regularly stocked by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife. The lake is open to anyone with a valid fishing license.

Waverly Park is also a favorite place of mountain bike and hiking enthusiasts due to its extensive system of shared-use trails (biking/hiking).

An accessible gravel trail encircles Waverly Lake and formal fishing pads line the water’s edge. A restroom facility is available with drinking water. A privately operated dog park is located in the area, as are two shelters that can be rented for picnics or other types of gatherings.

Fish species managed and stocked include catfish, sunfish, large-mouth bass, and rainbow trout in the spring and fall. Designated fishing spots are available around the lake to get anglers close to the water’s edge. Great place for a family fishing experience.
