First time traveling for this show. Loved the way Louisville had it set up. The experience with the performance shows. Would have been nice to have some food in the VIP area as well as something besides alcoholic beverages to drink, but overall great experience.

My wife and I stopped here on our way through Louisville. Spent a glorious hour walking around, lazing in the grass, putting our toes in the river. Would love to come back and rent a bicycle cart someday.

Waterfront Park has many events going throughout the spring summer and fall. It is clean and well kept. Great place to take a walk!

While traveling, we like to mix in some free or inexpensive activities with our paid outings. Two years in a row and we haven't been disappointed by spending some in this beautiful riverside park. You can find locals and tourists alike making use of the park walking, biking, picnicking, playing in the sprinklers or on the playgrounds. Save some time... More

I visited here with my family immediately upon arriving in Louisville, and was disappointed from the start. We were really looking forward to the kids playground and bridge, but parking was a nightmare - several lots were full, many cars full of rude families parked in the middle of the lots to unload preventing us from parking or even driving...

This is a great park that runs along the Ohio River. Great for walking or biking, access to the Big Four pedestrian bridge that allows you to walk from KY to IN. there are several venues -- open fields for play, playground equipment, people splashing in water features, an outdoor amphitheater, etc. And I felt safe walking around on my...

An Abe Lincoln statue (He was born here) and concrete sidewalks that are accessible for the handicapped and the rental pedal carriages. A wonderful FREE place to spend a few hours. There... More

Was by here today after the Color Run. Nice park! Very clean, nice views, good photography opportunities. At the very least, come see the views. The opportunities will present themselves from there.

Lewis and Clark started from here, as well as several civil war planning camps. The park has good quality signage, plantings and seating and the pavings are well done. The arch with historical plaques is tasteful and there are several heavy duty trash cans to keep in neat and clean.

We were disappointed down here. We actually walked from our hotel, which was over a mile away. It was a nice day and we thought there would be a lot to do. There is nothing there. There is a crab shack restaurant. The sightseeing boat is down there and thats about it. Its a nice view across the river with... More
