Owensboro Park named tops in the world

Landscape Architect's Network

 The riverfront playground in Owensboro has been named the top playground in the world by a landscape architect’s group. The Lazy Dayz playground as it’s known in the renovated showcase Smothers Park beat out playgrounds in countries like Turkey, Germany and  places in this country like New York City to gain the honor from the Landscape Architect’s Network.  Read the article.

In making the award, the group noted that, “ the Interactive spray fountains, multifunctional playing elements, colors, and materials ensure that all children will really enjoy this place.”

The playground and Smothers Park were renovated as part of the multi-million dollar riverfront upgrade in Owensboro that includes two hotels and a convention center.
