About This Activity

13 years ago we set out to establish an event to encourage families to be active together and enjoy a fun-filled day together as Marshall County's Family Week Fun Day in the Park.  Today, we are blessed to be able to continue that tradition.  100% of the proceeds go to support the fun day in the park and Marshall County school children.  Like family, the course has it's share of ups and downs, but it's worth it to explore and enjoy the beauty of one Kentucky's finest parks.  This event exists to highlight and promote the first and greatest institution ever created.....FAMILY.
