I'm very grateful that our city has invested our tax dollars for such amazing parks such as Smothers Park. It's a great place for children & adults and they offer so many free or cheap activities through the year. The park is just beautiful!

Brought our out of town family here and they were very impressed with our park and all of the activities and music during Friday After Five. Glad we could "show off" this beautiful part of Owensboro!

This is the place for festivals and free summer concerts for the whole family. Take a picnic and relax and watch the world go by. Let the music take you away to another time and place.
