Dayton is the northernmost community in Kentucky and has 5,300 residents. Located along the Ohio River bank, Dayton is opening its picturesque waterfront to potential commercialism.
The Ohio River has always played an important role with Dayton. Historically, the area had sand beaches along the riverfront that drew many visitors. Pollution in the river ruined these beaches and the river level was finally raised with dams – thus destroying all beach fronts. During its heyday, Dayton featured many hotels for steamboat passengers. The city had a ferry boat that transported passengers into Cincinnati daily. Many of the older Dayton homes have widow walks with views of the Ohio River.
Dayton has two marinas for boat enthusiasts: Riverside Marina has boats as well as a restaurant with weekend live music. The Marina at Manhattan Harbor also has boat slips for rent as well as a restaurant.
The city school system provides recreational opportunities such as tennis courts, ball fields, and picnic areas for residents, promoting a growing community spirit. Baseball, tennis, basketball, picnic, and water sports are available.
The city hosts several community events including an annual Kite Fest and Histories on the Square where residents share their Dayton stories.
Community parks include Monument Park, Walker Park, Tacoma Park, Sargeant Park and the Gil Lynn Park.
