Carrollton’s Point Park is located at the confluence of the Kentucky and Ohio Rivers.  In 1790 General Charles Scott built an elevated and fortified blockhouse on this site as a base for his Kentucky volunteers.  General Scott would later become the Governor of Kentucky from 1808-1812.  In 1805 The Point House was built on the site of General Scott’s blockhouse.  This well-known tavern was frequented by George Rogers Clark and other explorers.  A historical marker now denotes the location of these pivotal buildings in our small town’s history.

Current amenities at Point Park include a boat ramp (no launch fee), a 200′ boat dock, a splash park, a sand volleyball court, soccer goals, a basketball court, a skateboard park, and a playground.  Several shelters are available as are restrooms for guests.  You may also wish to stroll along the paved river walk or take a break on the swing or one of the various benches stationed along the way.
