“Along the banks of the Ohio River”

For those who have never had the pleasure of living in a city with a vibrant urban parks system, it's hard to imagine the many uses and benefits that urban parks offer to downtown workers, residents, and visitors. Louisville Waterfront Park is the front door to Kentucky, a playground for people of all ages, and a gathering place for folks from all over the community. It offers a grand view of the river, space for concerts and festivals, quiet places to read a book, picnic spaces for your family and friends. The parks hosts crowds of 350,000 for Thunder Over Louisville, and groups of 25 for family reunions. The Park is made up of three phases and totals 85 acres. The last phase, Phase III, is currently under construction and will be completed (with the exception of the Big Four Bridge and ramp) in June 2009. Phase I was completed in 1999 and contains broad, open spaces appropriate for large events, as well as smaller spaces intended for family gatherings or enjoying the Ohio River in a secluded setting. The centerpiece of Phase I is the Great Lawn, the park's most distinctive open space. Touching the Ohio and rising gradually over its 14 acres, it ends at Witherspoon Street, connecting the river to the city. Phase I is where the largest waterfront events take place, including Thunder Over Louisville in April and the Fifth Third Waterfront Independence Festival on July 3rd and 4th.

A great place for a walk and to see the city skyline. I got to enjoy seeing all the different boats during a festival.

Great place to walk along the waterfront! I tend to ride my bike up and down the park when I can as it's a great place to get outside and enjoy your day!

A nice park along the waterfront. It was fun going onto the pedestrian bridge and it provided a good view of the city. Definitely a good place to stop for a stretch!
