  • Awesome park with great kids playground area, in downtown Owensboro along the Ohio River waterfront! Great for kids, or a nice stroll for a couple, or bring a lunch to one of the many tables spread...

  • Quiet an amazing park downtown. The kids had a blast, 4 kids ages 9-13. There were even bigger kids running around as well. There’s a splash pad. Very detailed park, and the parent can sit on a swing....  more

  • Absolutely beautiful, well maintained park. We visited on a Monday evening about 6 pm, and it was not crowded at all- granted it was close to 95* still, but a nice wind blowing. There is a HUGE play structure, and within it are areas specific for different aged children. The child I was with was 8 so she was in the “Fox” play areas. There were 3 Fox play areas and let me tell you, some of that climbing equipment was challenging for me! I thoroughly enjoyed my time on the play set as did my much younger friend. The ground is cushioned and the equipment was clean and graffiti free. Walking along the water, there were many, many different types of seating available. From standard plantar wall seating to beautiful metal swings, to really cool metal boxes, plenty of shaded and uncovered seating. We walked just about the whole length of the park and it was all very clean- no litter, no graffiti. Should mention the beautiful splash pad- looked very refreshing on this hot evening. We enjoyed our time at this lovely park and plan on coming back to enjoy the play set and concession stand soon!
  • Wonderful place for children! They invested $60,000,000 here and it shows. The adjacent riverfront is impressive too. Adults will love the swings and walking area!
  • Huge riverfront park with a splash pad for summer. Very clean, and kept kids entertained for a long while. Loved the swinging benches along the path adjacent to park!
  • It is very nice did on the river has a veterans memorial which is very nice. Pretty fountain. Music. And a great place for kids to play
  • This has to be the best park in Kentucky for kids an adults alike! There are plenty of obstacles and activities to keep kids occupied and a beautiful riverfront lined with swings for adults. The fountains are nearby, the park and bathroom are clean, and the riverview is amazing. When concerts are at the pier on the weekend, you can hear the music from the park while the kids play. It's a great place to visit anytime.
