A.J. Jolly Horse Trails

A.J. Jolly offers approximately 20 miles of trails for the citizen or visitor looking to enjoy a day out on the horse. The partnership between the Campbell County Fiscal Court and Northern Kentucky Horse Network allows for the continued preservation of land and development of an extensive horse-trail network.

The Campbell County Environmental Education Center encompasses over 50 acres and allows visitors to experience field, forest, and wetland habitats. The center has two main walking trails for visitors to explore.

The state of Kentucky was pushing to improve its public park systems during the late 1950s. A Campbell County public park was voted to be established on November 16, 1959 by the Campbell County Fiscal Court. A five-person board was appointed by the county judge executive, Andrew J. Jolly, Jr, to provide, conduct, and maintain parks, playgrounds, and recreation centers in the county. A vote for a bond approval allowed six new state parks to be built, along with the building of a dam for the construction of the A.J. Jolly lake. The golf course opened on June 28, 1962, along with a bridle path and stable with 15 horses. The rest of the park was open to the public in 1963. A park extension was announced and the fiscal court voted to rename the county park to "A.J. Jolly Park" in honor of the former county judge.
