Lesko Park, Aurora, Indiana 
Lesko Park occupies a grassy, landscaped strip along the Ohio River waterfront. . There are three parking areas strung along Indiana State Road 56 just west of downtown Aurora. River access for boats is nearby using the Aurora Landing just off Judiciary Street. The park derives its name from Aurora Clerk-Treasurer Tony Lesko.
Along the Ohio River
Lesko Ohio River Park features a wide, asphalt walkway which is about a mile long. The walkway provides a great way to get a bit of exercise after a picnic lunch. It is an easy hike along the river. Visitors will find restrooms, playgrounds, picnic shelters and a wonderful vista of the Ohio River. The park provides access to the ten mile long Dearborn Trail that hugs the Ohio River shoreline to Lawrenceburg.
Great vistas of the Ohio River can be found all along the park's trail. You can watch barges and boats ply the waters as well as sight waterfowl feeding in the waters.
