Love visiting the pioneer village! The spray park is good place for little ones and pretty good playground equipment. The walking trails are well marked and pretty shady for the most part. Parking is plentiful.

Lovely public park with natural creeks and ponds. Also, hiking/walking trails and disc golf are available free of charge. This is the official home of ROMP and an Owensboro treasure.

The walking trails are well maintained and this park has 27 holes of disc golf. A nice park to go to if you don't care for the crowds at smothers park.

Several trails in the woods. A creek. Baseball fields. Spray park. Playgrounds. A lake. A “village” with some old buildings. A frisbee golf. nice place to spend a few hours or a day. And the River of Music Party (ROMP) is held there every year.

Yellow Creek is a world of its own. I can remember countless trips there just spent playing Narnia with my sisters when we were children, hiking the trails and running around on the playground. One of the most scenic gems in the Owensboro area.

A birthday celebration for great niece! My niece had it at one of the shelters at Yellow Creek Park. Ample space, right by the children's playground and water park. Clean facility and kid friendly.

Yellow Creek Park is one of the most quaint yet beautiful parks I've been too. It offers playgrounds and a lake and also my personal favorite, hiking trails. A family could spend a whole day here hiking, picnicking, fishing, and soaking up some sun. The...More
