  • Amazing park. We live 45 minutes away, and it is always a treat for us to take our 4 year old there to play. He loves it. We enjoy that it is a park we can fit on the structures with him. It allows for a truely family experience as we get to run around and experience this play time with him and that makes it so special. Sure we go to other parks, but most we can fit or squeeze into the little tubes etc. This park is built with the whole family in mind and everyone can experience it together. This is a great investment in the city. It brings us to your city as the primary attraction and then we spend money at local restaurants and shops while we are in town.
  • Biggest playground Owensboro has to offer! There is plenty of room and seating and a variety of play areas for all ages. The park is patrolled by an officer of OPD at all times.
  • Very nice Park we are about 45 min away , I just feel you all need more Security there was Three that we seen that had Staff on theirs shirts that was leaning against a wall but no where close to help if something should have happen in the play area , Our Grandson had a blast. . I had to stay up in the whole play area And his Papaw was busy below keeping a eye on him if he got down before I could reach him , I am not meaning you all are there to baby sit .We would never just leave our grandson alone also if the Road was closed off would be better and more Security for not just our child but many other Children We are just concerned Parent or Grand Parent !!
  • This is very nice park in downtown Owensboro near the water. In the evening the put ambient lights creating a very cool environment. When I was there there was a country band playing in the small theater in the middle of the park. People brought lawn chairs and was able to enjoy it for free. Also, it was on a Tuesday night! There's also a small water park where kids can play around in slides and other water activities. Definitely something cool and I'm glad the residents are able to enjoy it in this humid, summer days. There are also swing chairs facing the water. Perfect for a romantic night out with your couple. If only I have a girlfriend :p
  • This is such an amazing park! Especially if you play Pok√©mon go, it is well worth the trip out here. Very scenic & breathtakingly beautiful! All I can say is Wow! Amazing! Definitely going to visit in the future! :D
