We had a great time at Louisville Waterfront Park! There is free parking, the park is clean, and there is plenty of space. If you need shade, there are nice areas under the bridges, and tree coverage over the swings.

This was a great waterfront park with a variety of activities. It was very family friendly! We ate at the Spaghetti Warehouse which was a close walk to the park!

Great place to walk, bring the kids or the dog. Art exhibits, playgrounds, "swing garden,". The Lincoln Memorial was an unexpected find for this history buff

This project was done in phases over many years and with significant investment by the city. The end result is, in my opinion, what has to be one of the more spectacular city parks you will find. The waterfront includes Louisville Slugger Field, one of...More

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.
