Buschmann City Square Park

Buschmann Park, located in the center of 3rd, 4th, Jefferson and Madison Streets was originally called City Square Park but was renamed in 1980 after the generous and long-time residents George Heinrich Buschmann and his wife, Emma.  They donated the land for the future county court house in the early 1900's.  However, the court house was eventually built in Hermann when resident there not only donated the land for the court house but also donated the funds for the court house to be built.  George and Emma Buschmann also donated the land for Luster Park, the Library and City Hall.

Luster Park

Luster Park, located at the corner of 2nd and Washington Streets, originally was called The Railroad Park and has been in existence since the early 1900's.  It was renamed in 1988 in honor of the gentlemen who won the now famous horseshoe match but named the city after his friend Owens.  The community decided Luster needed some recognition and hence named this park after him.  The park features two horseshoe pits, covered picnic area, playground equipment, basketball court.

Winter Park

Winter Park was developed and dedicated in the mid 1980's.  It contains two racquetball courts and a covered picnic facility. The park was developed through the cooperation of local citizens.  The late Alfred (Dick) Dieckhaus and the late Peter Lehner were instrumental in its development.  Others spearheading the project were:  Jeff Schaeperkoetter, Jim Decker, the late Dr. Paul Baker, Tom Warden and Del Yamnitz.  Community individuals and groups helped make this a reality.  The park was named and dedicated in honor of Milford and the late Velma (Gottenstroeter) Winter.  The Winter's have been lifetime residents of Owensville and have generously supported activities and projects in the Owensville area.
