Our whole group took a LOT of pictures there, and we flew our drone to capture the beauty of the river and town. It was a nice gem of a place!

Not sure what to expect the art work was really good. They had quite a variety of pictures. Nice setting by river.

This is a beautifully maintained area. There are many benches, tables, trees and trash cans!! We came down to enjoy a picnic and after sat under the trees and watched the river boat captains do their thing!! Wow, it made for a very nice afternoon.

The grand Ohio river tells the story of Paducah and the American mid-west, or rather its west in the days of its founding. The murals are jaw dropping.

We loved reading all the plaques up and down the murals. Watched the tugboats and barges. Picnic tables and benches all around and you can drive right up to the water. Beautiful

Across the street is a good sized parking lot that you could park to look around in the area, but not to do overnight parking.
