Cove Springs Park was purchased with "Nature's Finest" license plate funds.
This is one of the most significant parks in the Kentucky Heritage Land Conservation Fund (KHLCF) system. The forested area protects a federally endangered plant, Braun's Rockcress, and a separate wetland restoration area provides habitat for waterfowl, amphibians and other wildlife. The adjacent city park provides an archery range, running track, picnic facilities, restrooms, and an overlook of the city of Frankfort. The city of Frankfort Parks Department received the 2010 KHLCF Stewardship Award for their management of Cove Springs.
- There are more than two miles of hiking trails.
- To protect habitat, the site is open to daytime foot traffic only; ATVs, horses and bicycles prohibited.
