The Whimsical Playground In Kentucky That’s Straight Out Of A Storybook

Located right along the Ohio River in downtown Owensboro, Kentucky is a six-block retreat known as Smothers Park. Within the Park is the Lazy Dayz Children’s Playground and Spray Park. This whimsical playground has won numerous awards and is widely considered to be one of the best parks in the country.

Smothers Park is located at 199 W. Veterans Blvd., Owensboro, KY 42303. Has anyone ever been to this whimsical little park before? What did you think?

I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky. I have lived elsewhere twice, but keep coming back. I'm a video editor and freelance writer who enjoys watching people wearing University of Louisville uniforms excel at sports, scaling the faces of large rocks, and hanging out with my border collie/laborador/cattle dog mutt thingy that I have.
