Any city any size would be jealous of the park on the waterfront in downtown Owensboro, best use of tax money ever. Fountains, walking paths, swings and one fun kids area, altogether Disney would seem more likely to have this park then a town in Ky, great visit.

There's a bandstand, several water features, large swinging seats, and a cool playground. You get to see the river and you're also walking distance from the cool or quaint specialty shops downtown.

The Owensboro waterfront has been nicely designed and built. The water features, walk way, and view are all awesome! The playground is incredible! Great place to walk around and relax!

I think without a doubt the rebuilt Smothers Park is the true heart of Owensboro. From the beautiful river walk along the Ohio, to the amazing playground, to the amphitheater and outstanding fountains, this is truly a showpiece. Bookended by the Riverpark Center on the East and the new Owensboro Convention Center on the West, there are tons of things... More

Have restrooms...wi-fi....eats swings..and lot more. One of the best setups I have been too that is free. Even had security people walking the whole area. Again... More

This river walk along the shores of the Ohio is down right beautiful. The City of Owensboro did a great job with this project. On a nice day, Smothers Park is packed with families strolling and kids playing. A great place.

This park has something for everyone in the family. What a great investment we made in our own community. I encourage anyone visiting Owensboro needs to stop in and enjoy the park with the beautiful views of the Ohio River.

I can not say enough good about this park! If you want peace, fun, beautiful sights and sounds or jist a good time with friends, you will find it here! Bathrooms are clean, even though they are near the children's area. Music always feels the air. Friendly, helpful police officers and/or security. Probably my happiest place on earth, I won't...
