We come down here very often to Louisville, we come to this area all the time. It's a beautiful greenspace with hecky plenty of room and space for many people without feeling cramped in.

The views of the Ohio River and its bridges is great from the park. However, the park is surrounded by elevated highways that make it quite busy.

Always something to do for everyone in the family! I plan on attending a concert here soon. Louisville definitely cares about providing things for the community! I love visiting!

Cool, attractive place to visit on a hot, humid day in Louisville. Places to sit and relax in each room. Good art, not many truly ugly modern pieces.
