About the park.

“Since Mary is of all creatures the one most conformed to Jesus Christ, it follows that among all devotions that which most consecrates and conforms a soul to our Lord is devotion to Mary, his Holy Mother, and that the more a soul is consecrated to her the more it will be consecrated to Jesus Christ.”

Blessed John Paul II
“On The Most Holy Rosary” (2002)


St. Mary’s Park is planned for the corner of 12th Street/Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Madison Avenue in Covington, Kentucky, opposite the entrance to St. Mary’s Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption.

The Cathedral is one of Greater Cincinnati’s architectural gems, boasting world-class art both within the church and on the church façade.

St. Mary’s Park is designed to complement the Cathedral’s art with its own inspirational sculpture, set in a richly landscaped space. The Park will provide a setting to view the impressive façade of the Cathedral, which includes Clement Barnhorn’s relief of the Assumption of Mary in the central tympanum.

The Park will be open to the public and will provide the wider community with a public space to gather and to relax in a soothing urban oasis.

St. Mary’s Park is a volunteer-driven project sponsored by the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption parish. Contributions to St. Mary’s Park fully qualify as charitable contributions under Section 501(c)(3).
