Great place to walk, bring the kids or the dog. Art exhibits, playgrounds, "swing garden,". The Lincoln Memorial was an unexpected find for this history buff

This project was done in phases over many years and with significant investment by the city. The end result is, in my opinion, what has to be one of the more spectacular city parks you will find. The waterfront includes Louisville Slugger Field, one of...More

This river front park is absolutely Millions of dollars of waste, It's wasted because the rest of the parks in Jefferson county suffer, several district have hardly no parks at all.

It's pretty and peaceful. It was absolutely clean. I admired how it was downtown but not noisy. I would come here again and recommend it too.

Make sure and do the walking bridge! It's great to walk to Indiana from Kentucky. When on the Indiana side, go to the candy store! Great family activity.

This is a nice waterfront park by the river in Louisville downtown. One can simple take a stroll, do bike, run or simply sit and enjoy the river.

I walked from my hotel to the park and found it to be a great viewing area for the Ohio River. Others have complained about panhandlers in the area but I saw none during my mid morning walk. Lots to see and plenty of benches...More

There are a couple of restaurants. Joe's Crab shack comes to mind. But I don't believe there is outdoor seating and dog friendly. If you go up a few blocks off of the river, there are up around Main street.
