Louisville has done a good job of reclaiming the waterfront as park. Our favorite part was the bird sculpture garden!

I highly recommend visiting the Louisville Waterfront Park while in the area! There are playgrounds, skateboarding, waterfalls, history, entertainment, and a gorgeous view of the Ohio River. Don't miss out on a walk across the Big 4 Bridge while here.

We walked to the park from our 4th street hotel. The walk was nice and the park is very pretty with a walkway along the river.

I love the water front for its relaxing qualities. You can feed the ducks or walk the bridge. The view of the river is amazing and there are some great historical facts located in this area.

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.
