Good for the family or just for a leisure stroll or run by yourself; they seem to be doing a lot of revitalization along the waterfront.

Two decades ago, this was an industrial wasteland. It's now one of Louisville's greatest assets - a huge open space on the Ohio River with walking paths, playgrounds, vast lawns. Abraham Lincoln monument is a highlight. Park also includes concert spaces, restaurants, concessions. It's become...More

Went looking for the foot bridge and happened upon Lincoln, 12 ft tall. Thought "this is a really cool place" walked around the park bought frozen yogurt and sat in a swing for awhile. Very nice place to walk or ride a bike.

Are there restaurants within walking distance with dog friendly outdoor seating?

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.
