This park has something for everyone! A kids play area that is off the charts, music on the weekends and you can stroll to several places for great food and shopping!

Whether a hot summer's day, a breezy Autumn afternoon or a starlit Winters night, or a sweet Spring day, the atmosphere at Smothers Park is always inviting. A park for all ages with a play area for the children, beautiful water fountains, a band shell for receptions and entertaining, a nice Veterans Memorial, tables for picnics or snacks, a smooth...

This is the best park I've ever been to! The play area is very neat in that it is all connected and there are different levels, depending on age. I noticed that there is also a handicap accessible swing that could accommodate virtually all sizes. Very, very nice park! I highly recommend it!

This new, multi-million dollar park is incredible. The childrens playground is state of the art. The fountains and benches placed around the park faced the river. The benches were swings and there were lots of them. Nice concession stand and very clean bathrooms were a nice touch. Very well lighted and safety patroled made me feel very safe.

This is a park you want to visit. Great place for the children. Beautiful water fountains that are timed. Nice place to sit on one of the many swings and relax. We were there in late summer but bet this place gets crowded in the hot summer days. Owensboro did a great design creating this space.

Gorgeous views of the Ohio River. The children's play area and spray park are awesome . There is live music several times every week in a variety of venues. Fountains and breathtaking sunsets make this a fabulous place to meet friends and family.

You're right on the bank There's a boat ramp, too. It's right downtown, along with the Bluegrass Museum , a VFW chapter, the Courthouse, and... More

I love this park! It's so cute and fun. I love to take my best friend's little boy here to play. I really like how they have the park catered to all different ages so that even the younger kids can play!

You can tell the city and residence take a lot of pride in this park. I walked through in the morning and there was not one piece of litter, and lots of people come here to walk. There is a really cool playground for kids, it made me wish I were 5 years old again! There are swinging benches for... More
