Tell City Riverwalk Description

While Tell City's historic floodwall, which dates back to the late 1930s, plays the essential role of protecting the city when the Ohio River's level rises, it could also be viewed as a visual and physical barrier to the riverfront for residents. Fortunately, there is the Tell City Riverwalk. Located on the inside of the floodwall, the Riverwalk invites the leisurely walker or cyclist to enjoy the riverfront. The trail extends about a mile along the Ohio River, with benches and overlooks provided to tempt users to pause and take in the scenery. The trail also cuts through Sunset Park, a family-friendly waterfront park where visitors can picnic, grill, play or simply relax under the shade of a tree. Murals brighten up the panels of the wall in Sunset Park, providing snapshots of Tell City's history.

Directly on the other side of the thick flood barrier are the tracks of the Hoosier Southern Railroad, a short-line railroad owned by Perry County Ports Authority that connects local manufacturers to the Ohio River port at Tell City. While that railroad is currently active, remnants of the town's railroading past can be found at the restored railroad depot on 7th Street, which today hosts the Convention Center & Visitors Bureau, gift shop, an events space and the local farmer's market.
