The American Planning Association designates Bowling Green's Fountain Square one of top ten Great Public Spaces for 2010.
Mayor Elaine Walker and Warren County Judge Executive Mike Buchanan accepted the award on behalf of the Bowling Green community.
Great Places in America looks for unique and authentic characteristics found in neighborhoods, public spaces, and streets.
Tim Houston of the Warren County Planning Commission says the award helps the city grow.
"The Planning Options with the growth of Bowling Green have pulled together and now we're trying to set growth in the right direction for the next thirty years. The elected officials as well as the special groups the home builders and those involved with development have really brought Bowling Green to the forefront," said Tim Houston.
Other cities on the list include Boston, New York City, and San Francisco.
