Brandenburg Riverfront Park’s 15 acres span the width of the downtown area, and offer an unparalleled view of the scenic Ohio River, the graceful Matthew Welch Bridge that crosses the river and the scenic, wooded Indiana shoreline on the opposite side. The park offers a playground for the children, a checkers/chess table, picnic pavilions, bandstand, amphitheater, soccer fields, a river walk and more. Counting the barges on the passing towboats helps makes for a relaxing afternoon, and weekend concerts make this a venue with something for everyone.

In July of alternate years, Civil War Days at Riverfront Park features a re-enactment of Confederate Gen. John Hunt Morgan’s Great Raid of 1863. And during Christmas by the River, which begins Thanksgiving weekend and runs through New Year’s Day, the park is the site of some 100 holiday light displays illuminated by an estimated 250,000 bulbs. From dusk to midnight each night, visitors view the displays as they either walk or drive through the park.
