STROLLIN OVER THE RIVER

NEW WALK ACROSS THE BIG FOUR BRIDGE

Once the Big Four Bridge was a bridge used by railroad companies. It sat in the midst of an area only a mile from the city center in an industrial area on the riverfront. Now the bridge has a new life as the latest jewel in the Waterfront Park.

In fact it is turning out to be the most popular spot in the park. People of all ages stroll across the span. The view of the city and the Ohio river is spectacular. There are no cars to worry about ...just people strolling with kids, joggers, cyclists, even jugglers and sometimes string quartets serenading everyone. You can see the Belle of Louisville steamboat and hear the calliope playing.

Soon the Indiana side will open their walkway and people will be able to access the bridge from both sides of the river.  A beautiful, peaceful, and  free way to spend the day!
