Waterfront Park and the Big Four Bridge
Louisville Metro has 122 city parks, several of which were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, who also designed New York City's Central Park. Waterfront Park is an 85-acre park that connects the city to the Ohio River, and features a 2.6-mile paved loop for training. The newly opened Big Four Bridge offers a scenic one mile paved pedestrian and bicycle path across the Ohio River. Speaking of biking, you can jump on the Louisville Loop at Waterfront Park and ride 23 miles along the waterfront and through historic neighborhoods. This is just the first section of what will be a 100 mile loop around the city.
