“Louisville Waterfront is beautiful.”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

The waterfront is a very nice clean place to walk, bike, picnic and enjoy some wonderful river views. It makes for a wonderful family day outing which has small water parks and many vendors.

“Beautiful Park with Tons to do!”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

Waterfront Park is a beautifully landscaped park overlooking the Ohio River. You have a great view no matter where you are. The city has put a lot of time and money into making it nice, comfortable, and entertaining. In addition to the many events that go on there, on a regular day you can find a huge play area, multi-person bicycle rentals, fountains for the kids to play in, a full sprinkler water park with a playground next to the Tumbleweed, and just a beautiful place for a stroll on the sidewalks along the river's embankment. Stationed around the area are neat bench swings facing the river.

“Thunder over Louisville”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

My friends and I were in Louisville, KY to catch the annual curtain-raiser to the Kentucky Derby and we were glad that we went! Though the weather was not too great (chilly winds with threat of rain), the overall experience was excellent. The airshow started right on time at 3 PM, and continued with the full complement of the KC-135 Hercules, the monstrous C-17 Globemaster, the F-16 Fighting Falcon, the F-18 Hornet, the Harrier (with its trademark hovering maneuver), and the big Daddy of 'em all: the F-22 Raptor. The Raptor was very impressive, demonstrating its thrust vectoring capabilities and flying at odd angles and implausible speeds (or lack of). All this lasted till 9.30 pm, when the fireworks started. And boy, were they good! For a full 30 minutes, we were treated to a spell-binding spectacle which has to be seen to be believed. Unmissable for anyone who likes aerial entertainment!

“Very Nice But Covered by a Freeway”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

It would be nicer if they demolished the freeway, but it is pretty nice as is. It is even better during Thunder Over Louisville. There are places to ride bicycles and walk. There are also park areas and a paddlewheel steamboat.

“Nice park to take a stroll”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

Its a nice park to run or jog or simple take a stroll, I personally like to go there around sunset. But be careful, as it's closer to downtown, it gets isolated in evenings, just be aware of your surroundings & try not stay after dark..
