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!

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.

Best Riverside Park in the USA! Beautiful Water Works (Fountains and Falls); Awesome children's play area both wet and dry. Very clean and maintained, and superior landscape and seating throughout. Beautiful Sunsets over the Majestic Ohio River!

July 4th visit. Grandkids having a real good time. The park is clean and well laid out. There is your usual con session stand fare. Adult swing that face both the park and the Ohio river.

This is a FANTASTIC Park. Right on the Ohio River with multiple places for bands to play and kids to romp around.
