Fountain Row - The BG Heartbeat
Every city has a heartbeat. That heartbeat is the center of
the community, and that center is downtown.
“So go downtown, things will be great when you’re
downtown - no finer place for sure, downtown. Everything is
waiting for you, downtown.” You might recognize those
lyrics from a 60’s song called “Downtown” by Petula Clark.
Funny thing is, years later, they still reign true.
Months in the making, right here in our town’s heartbeat,
Bowling Green officially has “Fountain Row” an
Entertainment Destination Center that is a true game changer
to our city. Not only does it allow residents and visitors to
get out and see more in downtown BG, it breaks down
barriers with new possibilities and an expansion of tourism
with business spotlights.
Have you ever been downtown at a bar and time got away

Fountain Row gives you the opportunity to take your drink

What are the boundaries you might ask? Fountain Row
covers pretty much all the heavily dominated areas, and I
guarantee there is a place in it for you. You’ll need to look
for the signs that indicate what is in and what is out.
Fountain Row will make weekends in BG better. Active
every Friday and Saturday from 11am to 9pm it will allow
for an even greater experience as you soak in everything
downtown has to offer. If you haven’t been in awhile, you’ll
be surprised at the new additions that continue growing our
Follow the rules, be respectful, and have a great time
knowing we live in the greatest community around.
Remember “the light’s so much brighter there, you can
forget all your troubles, forget all your cares” when you’re
downtown. So much hard work and long days have gone into
making this a reality, the City of Bowling Green and the
entire Downtown Development team can’t wait to see you at
