Perfect for family reunions, business picnics, weddings or birthday parties, the Allen Street Pavilion, in beautiful downtown Owensboro, is the best gathering spot with gorgeous views! You’ll have to wait until fall to schedule your next event as it’s closed…but, only temporarily.

The Allen Street Pavilion at Smothers Park will be closed beginning today for up to five weeks as repair work to the river wall is completed. The river wall panels were damaged when a barge ran into the wall earlier this year as Chad previously reported in April.
