We enjoyed traversing from Kentucky to Indiana along this 1/2 mile bridge that was lit up with changing colors of lights. Hearing Handel’s Water Music playing at the middle of the bridge was a delightful treat!

My husband and I love walking the bridge. The views are amazing, live music, random street performers, parks on both ends, and free! There are venders and restaurants, but you go for the views!

It's a great walk between Kentucky and Indiana with fantastic views of both states. There's music on the bridge and places to sit along the way too.

A lovely place to take a walk, landing in IN on the other side! There are several people who entertain you (for free) on the bridge, as well as classical, calming music to walk. Good area to get some exercise and be entertained at the...More

I've watched this bridge sit idle for most of my life when I would travel through Louisville. It is such a nice walking bridge and a great piece of history. There are really nice facilities at both ends and it will clearly serve a new...More

Walked on the Walking bridge. Views of the river very nice. Music coming through the speakers. It was a relaxing pleasant evening . You can rent bicycles to bike over the bridge if you want.
