KSO Summer Series at Devou – One Date Left!

This site is a public resource and input tool for parks and recreation in the urban core of Kenton County. It will help gather information from the public as part of planning effort for future parks and park programming.

It also features an interactive map that shows the location and amenities available at each park located within the cities of Covington, Ludlow, and Bromley.

Please take the survey and make your opinion count!
