Kind of a perfect Sunday afternoon outing, with appetizers at Joe's Crab Shack, followed by a stroll across the Big Four Bridge and back. There was a festive feel to the crowd on the bridge with us.

Louisville Waterfront Park is beautiful - a great place to enjoy the fall weather, the rivier, and great views.

This park is as welcoming and congenial as the city itself. Historic and land set aside for citizens to enjoy.

I walked down the waterfront to the pedestrian bridge that crosses over to Indiana. It was so very pleasant. There were families and others walking. I never felt alone or afraid. Wonderful walking venue.

It is not far from the city center. Walking to the park is a very nice experience as you pass historical sites and well maintained gardens. You would learn the history of the place, the river, and the role of the people played in the American history.

Waterfront Park was home to the Ironman competition. The entire area is beautiful with that wonderful river front view. There is a play area for kids and don't miss the view from the bridge. You can see for miles and miles.

We liked the stroll around The Abe Lincoln statue, seeing the watercraft on the river, and watching the workmen finishing the gorgeous new bridge.

We recently attended the AHA fundraiser American Heart Walk here to of course raise money for the American Heart Association. While walking from the car we commented how much downtown Louisville has changed since our youth. This area, once a dismal industrial site along the Ohio River, is now a stunningly beautiful park. They do have some outside concerts here.... More
