Elizabethtown Nature Park

  • 1900 Ring Road East
  • Elizabethtown, KY 42701
  • (270) 769-3916

The Elizabethtown Nature Park has 104 acres of gently rolling former pasture land. Freeman Creek meanders through the park as it flows to the City's largest lake, Freeman Lake. The Nature Park has been set aside as a passive park, where residents can enjoy the natural beauty of our community. A tunnel, connecting the Nature Park and the north end of Freeman Lake Park was constructed underneath Ring Road. The park also houses a pavilion and walking trail, which ties into the Freeman Lake Park trail system.

The Elizabethtown Nature Park is also home to the Hardin County Veterans Tribute, a star formation with granite monoliths and bronze sculptures honoring all five branches of the military and civil service.

You can show support of our brave military and our dedicated civil service workers by purchasing an engraved brick or paver, which will be placed beside the bronze plague that welcomes visitors to the Tribute. The bricks or pavers can honor:
