Activity Overview

Hosting everything from festivals, concerts, charity walks and sports tournaments to family reunions, weddings, and corporate picnics, the Louisville Waterfront Park offers Kentucky citizens and visitors a chance to enjoy 85 acres of green space alongside the Ohio River.

In 1986, the Waterfront Development Corporation planned to unite the underdeveloped waterfront area with the city of Louisville, and, in February 2013, the final stage of the plan was complete, resulting in an expansive park with opportunities for all to enjoy the natural beauty of the area.

Things to Do

  • Check the calendar for concerts and festivals of interest.
  • Take a stroll or a bike ride on the new Big 4 Pedestrian/Bicycle Bridge which connects Louisville to southern Indiana.
  • Play a frisbee, soccer or other game on the acres of green space.
  • Climb, slide and swing on the Adventure Playground.
  • Admire the memorial to Abraham Lincoln, which explains this historic figure's connection to Kentucky.
  • Purchase some seafood from Joe's Crab Shack.
  • Bring a picnic lunch, relax, and enjoy the river view.
