FORGET THIS PLACE...unless you want to stroll or pedal through an elongated green space along the riverbank that offers so much for so many people with differing needs and desires.
Each new feature added makes it even better. You can go on a quiet day and just walk around endlessly and observe people and places or you can go to a concert, special event, or fireworks display when the place is packed. At times it has a carnival atmosphere with all the vendors and concessionaires. Other than for huge events, there is convenient parking scattered along in small lots and on-street parking. The playground is nice and the water features are welcomed on a hot, humid Louisville afternoon. I love the way the officials turn their backs and let people ignore the signs and play in the water along the "canal." They let kids be kids.
