Louisville Waterfront Park is an 85-acre (340,000 m2) municipal park adjacent to the downtown area of Louisville, Kentucky and the Ohio River. Specifically, it is adjacent to Louisville's wharf and Riverfront Plaza/Belvedere, which are situated to the west of the park.
Phase I of Waterfront Park consists of approximately 55 acres (220,000 m2) and was dedicated on July 4, 1999. Louisville architects Bravura Corporation, together with Hargreaves Associates, were the designers of the park. Much of the park, such as the Great Lawn, had opened to the public by the fall of 1998. The initial development cost was about $58 million, a combination of public and private money. The site of the park was previously used for industrial purposes: scrap yards, sand pits and other industrial sites.

A fantastic place to go for a bike ride or walk on a beautiful day. Go across the big four Bridge into Jeffersonville. It's a rare opportunity to walk across the Ohio river and see such beautiful views.

Love what this has turned into over the years. The view is perfect for kiddos, and anyone wanting to just chill and enjoy the sights. The trails that go along the river are by far the best to longboard in the area, especially at night against the rivers breeze. The city outdid themselves for sure.

Great hiking, biking and picnicing. There are also festivals held throughout the year. There may be camping available for vendors, but there is no campground.

A nice park to walk around, especially in the summer. Enjoy nature, fresh air, take in views of the River, people watch, clean and well Maintained.

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.
