Two of my friends and I attended the Saturday shows at Forecastle 2015.The organizers did an excellent job in accommodating the massive crowd for the festival. The Park is beautiful any time of the year and if your in the downtown area,it is a must to enjoy an outdoor day along the River.

I drive by this location a couple of times a week. I enjoy seeing all of the children playing in the water as well as all of the people strolling the area. Summers are very nice when you have a park like this to be involved with.

We were there at dusk, and the park was lovely. Pleasant place to walk and enjoy. Two police cars were in the parking area, one at either entrance. We felt very well protected.

Wonderful place where your family can walk across a pedestrian bridge to Indiana, ride bikes or scooters along the riverwalk or rent a 4 person bike and travel down the waterfront or marina area. Playgrounds and water spray parks abound and you can also grab a bite at walkable restaurants.

We stopped here for a picnic lunch on our way from missouri to North Carolina on vacation. Our two boys ages five and eight, enjoyed playing on the nice array of playground equipment. We took a short stroll to stretch our legs. It seemed like a nice area. Nothing overly special but a good area to rest.

We went for a long walk using the paths through the park. It's o.k. for taking a walk, but I didn't think it was particularly beautiful or much of an attraction. One section was a little remote and we came upon a group of men apparantly drinking and hanging out at a picnic table. One of them greeted us and... More

Very peaceful, seemed like everyone was enjoying the day, from small children to bicyclists and joggers. Enjoyed watching the Belle of Louisville travel up and down the river. Food was good and the exhibits were interesting.

This is one of my favorite things about Louisville. I love walking along the riverfront, and I feel relatively safe doing so. This is a big selling point for this city.

I highly recommend visiting during Summer Wednesday Concert if you are into live music. It is crowded, so not for you if you want a peaceful experience. But since I am out of town and first time to Louisville, I got a good glimpse of locals enjoying themselves. I got to listen to some really good bluegrass music.

wish we had more time to hang out in this area so we could have rented bikes - we did the walk along the park and across the bridge & back - also played in the water fountain in the park - a great way to cool off if you are hot after the walk across the bridge! really enjoyed... More
