I really liked the giant steel porch swings and the availability of play areas for children. The sprayground wasn't functioning while we were there but it looked very inviting.

Lots of activities and events go on here all the time with a great view of the mighty Ohio River. Plenty of free and paid parking near by.

There's a good amount of things to do within walking distance, and there's a beautiful view of the river! There's restaurants, bike rentals, playgrounds, sidewalks, swings, and lovely landscaping. If you're in Louisville and need a good place to visit or something to for an afternoon, this is a great place to go to!

What used to be piles of scrap heaps of junk metal has been transformed into miles of beatiful green space. Louisville Waterfront Park is now the front door to Kentucky, a playground for people of all ages, and a gathering place for folks from all over the community. It offers a grand view of the river, space for concerts and... More

Waterfront is always nice to visit if you want to change things up from a boring routine of going out to eat, movies, mall, etc. There's some fun playgrounds and scenic walkways and usually parking is not too difficult.

I am not sure what this waterfront is trying to accomplish but, it needs major improvements. The closer you get to the water the nastier you smell the stench of dead fish or something else.
