  • Make sure and do the walking bridge! It's great to walk to Indiana from Kentucky. When on the Indiana side, go to the candy store! Great family activity.  more »
  • This is a nice waterfront park by the river in Louisville downtown. One can simple take a stroll, do bike, run or simply sit and enjoy the river.  more »
  • I walked from my hotel to the park and found it to be a great viewing area for the Ohio River. Others have complained about panhandlers in the area but I saw none during my mid morning walk. Lots to s...  more »

  • This park is awesome! There's a huge playground with multiple themed climbing areas. One is shaped like a large paddle steamer. There are a couple more currently and, when I was there, they looked to be close to opening up yet another one. There are pubic restrooms... They're a little bleak, but better than nothing, I guess. I was able to help my 4 year old use them, but it was a pretty grim enterprise. There is a tonne of open source up towards the bridge and some riverside trails with swing benches if you're looking for something less energetic to do.
  • Love the scene of the city and water. I just wish they had a little more to do. Overall its a nice walk.
  • Louisville Metro Parks has done a fantastic job of making this place enjoyable and LMPD is doing a great job of keeping it safe. It's a wonderful place for some good photography and an amazing place for a walk/jog.
  • Great park on the shore of Ohio River. Quite peaceful and a good place for outdoor activities for both, adults and kids. The parking is free and there is a children's play area just as you enter the place. There are tracks for cycling and trails. Beautiful views of two bridges on either side - I-64 on one side and I-65 on another. When we went there were people with their kids learning cycling or playing on their own in the play area. There were people jogging or just having a leisure walk along the trail. There were a couple of adults playing various outdoor games. Some of the trees are perfectly apart to tie a hammock and relax reading your favorite book. There are benches and large swings where you can sit back and enjoy the view. Overall, a great place to be if you want to take a moment off from the busy life and enjoy the nature for a while.
  • Awesome park. Fun for the family. Neat events.

Where to stay in Louisville

Old Town has a number of atmospheric hotels close to the city’s main attractions, while hotels in the Highlands neighborhood offer proximity to the city’s most unusual bars, restaurants, and stores. Louisville’s collection of bed and breakfasts, generally farther from town, are a great way to experience some warm Kentucky hospitality. To save some money and enjoy the city’s scenic surroundings on a vacation in Louisville, consider one of Louisville’s campgrounds. The Jefferson Memorial Forest is just 24 km (15 mi) south of downtown.
