The Louisville Riverwalk travels through downtown along the Ohio River between Waterfront Park and Shawnee Park, west of the city. The trail features scenic river views, including an overlook near 26th Street, where you can see McApline Lock & Dam. Coal barges and passenger boats use the lock to go around the Falls of the Ohio.

The trail provides access to parks and city amenities.

Parking is available in Shawnee Park, at the trail's southern end, and at Lannan Memorial Park (where Marine St. and 26th St. converge and at the end of Lannan Park Rd.) and at Festival Plaza on the Waterfront (River Rd.).
