Coming from Chattanooga, TN where there is an excellent waterfront, Louisville does not disappoint. Great field where events are held, water features, park with benches, restaurants...this is a great place to spend some time alone, with friends, with family or with a special person.

Waterfront park is a nice place for a stroll along the river. It has Joes Crab Shack for a bite, river boat cruises are available, and a great view of the city. Parking was only $3

Nice spot to get away from the big city. Lots of great views of the river lots of paths and green spaces. Parking can get to be a problem on weekends.

This park is right on the river. There is a walkway that leads to a playground and benches where you can sit and take in the beautiful view.

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.
