Most important, GPS IS WRONG! Go to the website and do what they say to GPS it, don't use the link here, we did and it is extremely WRONG. The Bridge website knows the problem and explains how to get there using coordinates.
So glad we took the time to drive out to this spot! So glad we didn't give up after it wanted us to pull into a subdivision several miles from downtown.
This is a very popular bridge for runners, bikers, walkers and sightseers. But don't let that scare you, there is plenty of parking and grounds to hang out on and the bridge is almost a mile long so there is lots of space. The police drive back and fourth on a golf cart (not there they need too), the bicyclist are considerate along with the runners. The view from the bridge is pretty nice especially on the Jefferson side. There are a few spots explaining the history of the bridge too. The other side (IN side) isn't complete yet, the bridge is but the grounds are not. But there are a lot of neat old home and the flood wall that is pretty cool to look at. There is also an Treats/Frozen Yogurt store right at the end of the bridge (yes DAIRY FREE OPTION!). The KY side has a swing garden (with swings that are similar to porch swings) and a splash pad. Lots of walking trails and a Lincoln Memorial place.
I will say up until we went to this place we were totally unimpressed with Louisville, I'm so glad we didn't give up and went here it was a nice evening with my spouse.
