The Waterfront is updated Nov 15, 2017
The Louisville Waterfront Park is linked to Jeffersonville, Indiana over the Ohio River by the Big Four bridge which was built as a railroad bridge in 1895, and decommissioned in the 1960s, when the ramps to the bridge on both sides of the river were removed. Today, the bridge averages more than 1.5 million visits per year by walkers and bicyclists. There are parks on both ends of the bridge that are reached by a ramp with a park area on each side. Round trip is 2 miles.

On the Louisville side, there are restaurants, playgrounds, a water feature with dancing waters, sculptures, gardens. Waterfront Park hosts concerts, such as Forecastle. It's an easy walk to the Yum Center for basketball games and concerts.

On the Jeffersonville side, there are also restaurants, playgrounds, RiverStage which hosts free yoga, concerts, and movies on summer weekends.

The Waterfront is not "hopping" everyday but there is so much within a few blocks that if you haven't been to the Waterfront in the last couple of years, you don't know what you're missing!

The City has spent Millions and Millions on this place its nothing but a waist. The rest of the City of Louisville parks has suffered because of the this so called adventure now they have purchased an old Railroad bridge built in 1895 for millions they are going to fix up, They even have a group they pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for to see how they can spend millions on this place. I refuse to go there. Homeless, beggers and drunks hang out there!!!

The big four bridge built in 1895
