Paved walking trails to a beautifully landscaped and cared for city park. Wheelchair accessible and pet friendly, this walk along the riverfront is one of the cities treasures.

Statue of young Abe Lincoln is very impressive. Large boards tell the story of his time in Louisville. Several folks were riding bikes on the paths. Family swings are fun. We sat in the amphitheater for awhile just watching the river.

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.
