We could not find parking on the waterfront. Walked past too many panhandlers along the water. Sketchy place. Not worth the risk.

Beautiful place to picnic, relax and enjoy the sun. Bring a piece of cardboard to slide down the grassy hills near by.

Coming from Chattanooga, TN where there is an excellent waterfront, Louisville does not disappoint. Great field where events are held, water features, park with benches, restaurants...this is a great place to spend some time alone, with friends, with family or with a special person.

Waterfront park is a nice place for a stroll along the river. It has Joes Crab Shack for a bite, river boat cruises are available, and a great view of the city. Parking was only $3

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.
