Camp Catalpa Park is located on the East Side of Lake Reba. In the 1970's the land was designated as a bird sanctuary by meeting guidelines including: hunting is not allowed, trees are plentiful, and there is a water source.

Beginning in 2014, the Richmond Parks & Recreation Department has made the following improvements: updated bathrooms, removed the old metal shelter and installed a new large wooden shelter, installed new roofs on the bathroom and the small shelter, removed 10 acres of honeysuckle and invasive species/ overgrowth, expanded the 0.5 Mile Walking Trail to a 2 Mile Walking Loop, installed a new playground, and installed new signage. Throughout the project, we worked with the KY Department of Fish and Wildlife to ensure that anglers were able to have more opportunities to fish on the lake, which was an added benefit to the increased mileage of the trails. The disc golf course was expanded to an 18 hole course.

 

Disc Golf Course
Disc golf is a game for all ages. There is no charge to play, just bring your own disc. The course was constructed by the Richmond Disc Golf Club and was funded by the City of Richmond Parks & Recreation Department. Discover the beauty of Camp Catalpa by walking this 18 hole/9 fairway course. The first hole is located at the top of the hill next to the large shelter. Follow the signs to the other fairways. Come see this beautiful park in a whole new light. Camp Catalpa Park is located on the back side of Lake Reba Park.
