Meeting Facilities

Carson Park also provides a venue to experience the unbridled spirit of Kentucky’s legendary horse culture. Recurring Southern Horse Owners & Exhibitors open breed horse shows showcase English and Western riding styles. Training and stabling facilities at the park provide an outlet to elevate your equestrian skills and house your horses while in Paducah.

Travelers may rent a stall for $10 per night or $35 monthly.
