“Just Keeps Getting Better”

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.

Thought we were there but only two paddle boats at the park, unless we missed it along the way. Will only give it 2 stars in case we were there and not worth it or it was so hard to find not worth looking.

Clean park with great views. There was a playground area, fountains and walking/ running trails. Fantastic views of Clarksville, the Ohio, and all the bridges.

No matter where you go in this park, there's something to see and something to do. My camera never stops clicking when I visit, and I do frequently!

You don't feel like you are in the city. It is beautiful, with lots to do. You can rent bikes and other pedal vehicles. The playground is spectacular. There is even a large water-playground for hot days.
