We were on a road trip and saw the former -train-tracks-turned-into-a-pedestrian-walkway from the highway. It is stunning. We got off the highway and walked the bridge just before sunset for a much needed break. It was extremely well done, the park is lovely, and it...More

Lovely place to take a stroll. You can rent bikes at the bike station and take it along the water front or in the park. There are benches under the trees. A place of tranquility. Enjoyed the visit.

A very nice park around the Big 4 Bridges. Perfect for a jog, stroll or bike ride. Nice paths, garden, statues, etc. along the river make for a enjoyable experience.

Very pleasant, clean park on the waterfront in Louisville. Beautiful views of the water and close to town. Only downside is that a loud interstate right by the river.

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.
