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.

Stopped at the park on our way home. There are so many little spots to pull off from and enjoy; parking was free, although somewhat hard to come by on a busy day. There were plenty of options for play, lots of pedestrian paths to explore, and lots of shade. I had injured my back and was unable to get... More

There's always something going on at the Waterfront. We love the music performances and festivals. It's a great area to sit and watch boats and aircraft as well as enjoying the river and people. Lovely walk and parks along the river. One of our favs!

We needed to give our dogs a good, long walk and this place fit the bill. What the city has created offers stunning views of the river and area bridges; the waterfall-like feature is beautiful and the children's play area offered many options for the kids we saw. The grounds were maintained well, we had no problem finding parking and... More

I thought the park was beautiful because it was organic. You could really feel that the river was the main attraction. The main building was lovely and I appreciated the historical signs along the way.

We parked and walked this area after Sunday Brunch. It's a great place to walk and parking is free YAY. It's a nice open space with lots of room for kids to play, dogs to run, bike riding and families or singles in general.

There are many different activities held on the Louisville Water Front Park. It is located downtown Louisville at the edge of the Ohio River. It is a very attractive place to enjoy outside activities.

I love the river front! This place is a great place to run the kids out, walk the dog(s) see or be seen, or just sit on one of the swinging park benches and watch the river roll. It's peaceful and lovely. Though the bathrooms are gross and the city really needs to do a better job of keeping the... More

The city is dedicated to make this a nice clean enjoyable area for families. The area is full of wonderful bike trails and plenty of manicured green grass making it a great place for concerts, fireworks, etc.
