As a connoisseur of "Public Squares," this is a jewel !!! Having been designated as the eventual location of "The Confederate Capital of Kentucky," & later the "southern KY capital, there are many memorial, plaques, & sights, among the shaded gardens & walks. The huge beautiful fountain centerpiece, is worth a trip to see, in itself. Having been there many... More

This park is the gem of Bowling Green! Located in the center of the quaint historic square of Bowling Green surrounded by beautiful historic buildings, this lovely park is definitely worth a visit when in town. There is a gorgeous fountain in the middle of the park blooming with water lilies when the weather is warm and decorated beautifully with... More

I have lived in Bowling Green and have enjoyed Fountain Square Park all my life. Bowling Green it very lucky to have such a park in the middle of our unique town. I actually met my husband while working in a then downtown ladies store so I have great memories of what downtown use to be like.

This is a block square Park in the middle of down town Bowling Green KY. A place to relax and enjoy nature. Weddings and concerts are held here, but the best part is that there is History and beauty. Just sit and enjoy or walk about. Surrounded by several restaurants, pubs and benches. Just beautiful.

We have taken pictures here for most of the events in my children's lives. You can enjoy the day sitting in the shade and soaking up the atmosphere.

There isn't much at the square, several stores that have closed and are vacant. The square itself it nicely kept but there really isn't much to do unless you are going to sit and relax. We were there on a Thursday evening and it was dead... no life in the square at all. Thankfully there was a little restaurant with... More
