“Great Fun!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

This is a great park next to the Ohio River with easy access from Downtown, but otherwise kind of hard to get there. It has some great playgrounds and also a water area which is great when it's hot.

“Forecastle, Waterfront Wednesdays, etc”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

If you come to Louisville make sure to check out Waterfront park. There not a lot of restaurants right on the river but a few really good ones a few blocks away in downtown. You may catch a concert if you go on a Wednesday evening for free.

“Waterfront”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

We were sorely disappointed in the waterfront area as a whole. The only restaurants could use some over hauling. The "older" part of the waterfront which probably was once a great place is now terribly dirty and is used by dopers and is used as a restroom by them as well. Why could this not be cleaned up and used again. You have to also walk in this area from the waterfront to the Fourth Streeet Live too and I would not want to walk it alone and especially in the dark. The newer part of the part is good.

“Perfect outing with the kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Park has been updated since our last trip to Louisville - very nice splash pad and lot of playground attractions right next to the bridge that you can walk on to Indiana. Would be nicer is Louisville figured out some sort of restaurant/fast walk up drink and eat sort of places - other than the Tumbleweed (which really needs a menu overhaul).

“Jewel of Louisville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

The Louisville Waterfront Park is a great area, and frankly the jewel of Louisville. Children love it, adults love... you can play, relax, etc. It has a nice sized playground that I admit to playing on with the children, it's hard to resist. There is a small "water park" area, with fountains and cool discoveries. It has the nice seafood restaurant "Tumbleweed,"and there is only a short walk to Big Four Bridge, which I also recommend. It is a great place to relax and look at the river, or play and make memories. Whichever you choose, it's great!
