Owensboro has put a lot of time and money into updating their riverfront (They are on the Ohio River). It is a great place to sit in swings and watch the river flow by.

I love Smothers Park. We take our kids there quite a bit during warm weather. There is ample room to walk, have a picnic, and romp and play. I always see a police officer on duty and always feels safe no matter what time of the day or night. The play area is clean, and interesting. Although I do have to admit it is usually a little crowded for my taste. But all in all I think it is a great place to bring your kids. I also recommend bringing your lunch there on pretty days. There is free Wi-Fi near the concession stand. And you can enjoy the beautiful water.

Very nice place for a safe walk. To get together for a moment away from everyday life. Great Job Owensboro for improvement of the riverfront.

We went to take kids out for the day. The Park is amazing. But it could be a little scary if you have small children. It would be impossible to keep up with them.

The downtown location is beautiful. Inside or out you have a wonderful view of the River. The bands that Friday after 5 books are amazing. Free concert, great music, a great place to meet friends, and just one great time!
