"Peshewa" Nature Trail at the Reservoir Park (500 E.)
Located in eastern Howard County, Kokomo's Reservoir Park has a 1.3 mile hiking trail. The park which was built in the 1970's is located off of 500 East and 100 North and offers the tranquility of the great outdoors.
Spanning 30 acres, the park has two open-air shelters, a playground, bank fishing access and a 1.3 mile hiking path that stretches from the park to the Kokomo Reservoir Park Dam on 400 East.
The park features a natural wetland on the south side of the property. From there, you can see all types of birds and other wildlife.
There is also a handicap accessible fishing pier. A few restrictions apply when it comes to visiting the area. There is no hunting and no camping, and fires are only allowed in grills in designated areas. Motorized vehicles are not allowed on the nature trail.
There is no public launch ramp for boats at the 500 East park, but there is a public ramp at 400 East near the dam.
