Owensboro Riverfront

The Owensboro Riverfront District spans approximately 1.4 miles along the southern edge of the Ohio River, including the downtown, residential neighborhoods, and major civic open spaces. The intent of the Riverfront District Master Plan is to reclaim the riverfront as a major public area and icon for the City of Owensboro. The master plan includes a riverwalk promenade connection from the downtown area to a signature park along the river; the creation of a major downtown public space; marina facilities including seasonal docks and an inland harbor marina; streetscape improvements; and pocket parks overlooking the riverwalk promenade.

For nearly a decade, EDSA has led a series of sustained community consensus building efforts resulting in a master plan for riverfront development and implementation of several strategic projects including outdoor patio improvements at the local cultural center, a public/private partnership to create an outdoor amphitheater and plaza, relocation of a boat ramp which turned into a gateway park on the Ohio River and ongoing efforts in developing a world-class riverfront park.
