Island MetroPark

Formerly known as the White City Amusement Park, the confluence of the Stillwater and Great Miami River has hosted entertainment venues for decades.  In 1940, Dayton city leaders erected the Leslie L. Diehl Band Shell where concerts entertained Daytonians.  Years later it hosted the Dayton River Festival.  Today, the park still hosts events, a splash pad, and many old trees as the Great Miami Riverway and Buckeye and North County trail riders follow the river.
