Beautiful riverfront

Beautiful redevelopment of the Louisville waterfront along the Ohio River. Space to walk, ride bikes, play on well-designed playground space.

It is unusual to see a downtown park facility that is as lovely, safe and enjoyable as Louisville's Waterfront Park. Stroll along the river side among the trees and lawns, kids can play in the playground (parking is free). DO NOT MISS the "circle bridge", a railroad bridge renovated into a walking path that connects Louisville with the Indianna side.... More

The Waterfront Park has been a big addition to the skyline of Louisville! Very pretty place but it would be nice if there was more eating, drinking and dining places along the waterfront, but the park is a very good start!

Staying at the Galt House the Waterfront was right there and after a busy week of business meetings the quiet was a welcome change. There was some construction ongoing but nothing to intrusive.

There are so many activities at this park! Right on the banks of the Ohio River, there is a large playground, plenty of trails for biking or walking, and even a water interaction area. During the summer, there are also some great concerts on the Waterfront. Check out Forecastle Fest in July every year!

We rented one of the 4-person bikes and rode throughout the park. Incredible views along the riverfront and nice places of interest along the way (including the Abraham Lincoln statue). Word of caution: Certain areas in the path required you to leave the park and ride/walk along the main road, due to construction.

I wish we'd figure out what a downtown is supposed to be, but Waterfront Park is the best idea this little town has had yet. Taking what used to be an industrial wasteland and turning it into a clean, manicured setting that offers something for everyone has been the best thing I've ever seen the city do.

Smaller than I thought (unless there was a part I didn't see?) but it's a cool little stop! It's worth the time out of your day to check out!

Beautiful open space, paved trails, manmade waterfalls, park benches and swings right on the water's edge. Probably very expensive to maintain water features, but it was very nice for a New Year's Day walk.
