Kids and parents loved this. They all said it was a blast. They came back wore out lol so enjoy it. You will have fun on a hot day cooling off. Bring money for drinks and snacks.

I love the waterfront park, there is lots of things for the children to do parks and water parks. Walking area for adults and the big 4 bridge to cross. Plenty of fun and games to play in the grassy area. KItes to fly and romote control cars to play with.

We went to the park after walking around parts of the city to enjoy the views of the river and to wait for the fireworks. We decided to watch the July 4th fireworks display over the river from the park. What a beautiful experience!

Love the walk over the Ohio river. Was pleasantly surprised at how nice it is to traverse the bridge to and from the park area to Indiana. The kids love the views too. Bike rentals, sandwich booths, water fun and playgrounds make this a very nice free attraction...
