  • I brought some out of town family to walk across the Big Four Bridge on a beautiful day. The pedestrian access is well planned and accessible to everyone, including bike riders. The bridge crosses the...  read more »
  • Walking across the bridge from louisville side is a great way to entertain kids for a few hours. Adequate parking on the louisville side. Once in Indiana walk to the candy store. 
  • Love seeing Louisville in all of its fabulous diversity here on the bridge. Easy walk, great view of the river and city. Fun with kids! 
  • What an amazing bridge! Go just before sunset, enjoy the sunset from the bridge and then bask in the LED lights. A great place to spend an evening, with some fresh air. Jeffersonville, IN, across the bridge from Louisville, is a neat little city with historic houses, an ice cream shop, and a really nice waterfront (waaay nicer than Louisville's, which is dominated by expressways).
  • Water fountains would be nice... Since they added some illuminating effects to the bridge, it's very pretty at night. Great park for kids and family!
  • Amazing date spot or a place where you can go to hangout. Definitely a place you need to check out if you are visiting Louisville for the first time. Be sure to check out Schimpff's candy across the bridge if you feel like going on a mini adventure!
  • I wish there was a painted line across the bridge to straddle over for photo fun. The bridge is beautiful, the history is interesting - it's worth a visit!
  • It's a beautiful bridge and I like that they have speakers playing classical music on them. The architecture is fascinating. It beats crossing the river on the other bridges where cars are flying past you. Unfortunately you can't take your dogs/pets on this bridge. I guess they had a problem with owners not picking up their animals excrements. My boyfriend and I are responsible pet owners and always pick up after them so it's unfortunate that we're "punished" with having to cross on other bridges because of lazy dog owners on this pedestrian bridge. I'd give it a 5 stars if I could take my dogs with but since I can't it has to be 4. Beautiful bridge though.
