A very nice park around the Big 4 Bridges. Perfect for a jog, stroll or bike ride. Nice paths, garden, statues, etc. along the river make for a enjoyable experience.

So much to see and do! We always visit this park when in Louisville. We have been during the day and at night and both times are great.

Very pleasant, clean park on the waterfront in Louisville. Beautiful views of the water and close to town. Only downside is that a loud interstate right by the river.

This park is very nice. You will see multiple bridges, and ships as well as a very nice Lincoln memorial. Many places to stop and sit or swing along the water. Very nice.

There are a couple of restaurants. Joe's Crab shack comes to mind. But I don't believe there is outdoor seating and dog friendly. If you go up a few blocks off of the river, there are up around Main street.
