We pulled over and parked on Witherspoon Street in front of the ground water fountains at Louisville Waterfront Park. I walked down the Riverwalk to the end where it meets the Ohio River and looked out at the water and the various bridges in the area. There's plenty of parks all alongside the Ohio River in Louisville, but sadly we... More

Louisville's waterfront keeps getting better. You can do anything from walk, jog, eat, get wet 💦 even rent a tandem bike and tour the downtown. Often there are concerts, art shows or festivals occurring on weekends- it's worth the trip to see this beautiful waterfront.

Used the waterfront park and old river road area for a morning run with my brother in law who lives in downtown near the baseball park. Trails were marked with quarter mile increments. Great vistas of the Ohio river. Several restaurants located at or near the river.

We had planned on going to the Big 4 Bridge, but ended up pulling into the Lincoln Parking lot just before it. (West of it, I believe.) We didn't want to walk that far to get to the bridge, and found, by accident, this memorial to Abraham Lincoln. It was very intriguing and enlightening, in that I hadn't realized Abe... More

I was at the soulfood fest in June the 14, it was for a birthday celebration, I have never been to Louisville. Ky, so I was really amaze at the view from across the bridge, and I never really imagine the water, so much water to my amazement. I really enjoyed the concert, the setting was really nice, and the... More

This is a great park next to the Ohio River with easy access from Downtown, but otherwise kind of hard to get there. It has some great playgrounds and also a water area which is great when it's hot.

If you come to Louisville make sure to check out Waterfront park. There not a lot of restaurants right on the river but a few really good ones a few blocks away in downtown. You may catch a concert if you go on a Wednesday evening for free.

We were sorely disappointed in the waterfront area as a whole. The only restaurants could use some over hauling. The "older" part of the waterfront which probably was once a great place is now terribly dirty and is used by dopers and is used as a restroom by them as well. Why could this not be cleaned up and used... More
