Stayed at hotel on river and adjacent to park. Clean walking trails and felt safe walking by myself while spouse in meetings. Thank you to people of Louisville for excellent stay!

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

Park has been updated since our last trip to Louisville - very nice splash pad and lot of playground attractions right next to the bridge that you can walk on to Indiana. Would be nicer is Louisville figured out some sort of restaurant/fast walk up drink and eat sort of places - other than the Tumbleweed (which really needs a... More

The Louisville Waterfront Park is a great area, and frankly the jewel of Louisville. Children love it, adults love... you can play, relax, etc. It has a nice sized playground that I admit to playing on with the children, it's hard to resist. There is a small "water park" area, with fountains and cool discoveries. It has the nice seafood... More

The park is very nice! My boyfriend and I got chipotle and then went to the park to eat and walk. The walking bridge is very nice! I also enjoy the swings they have available; a nice change from a regular park bench. The view of the river is great. There is a playground for children, with fun water attractions... More

Waterfront park is great! Splashpad for kids, playgrounds, lots of swings to enjoy river, bike paths, bike rentals, and walking bridge. You could spend a few minutes here or a few hours! The skyline of Louisville in the background is beautiful!
