Pets love the chance to explore this riverside park with open grassy areas—such as the Great Lawn—and plenty of shady trails to stroll along. They're welcome in the majority of the park on-leash. Dogs are not allowed in the playgrounds, waterplay, water feature, and Big Four Bridge areas. Louisville Waterfront Park is open from 6am to 11pm, daily. Visit Website

    Not a Dog Park

    This is not a dog park so it's not surprising the planners did not incorporate dogs' needs into the design (such as shade, etc). However, had dog owners who walked to bridge when it first opened been responsible enough to pick up after their dogs we could all still bring ours onto the bridge. I give the park one bone simply because it is NOT a dog park and this site is for rating dog-friendly places.

    Dogs not allowed on pedestrian bridge

    Dogs only allowed in grassy area at the pedestrian Bridge. If u go to the actual waterfront park which is by Joe's Crab shack theres a larger park to walk ur dog in

    Pretty Park

    It’s sad that dogs are not allowed on the bridge due to a few idiots.

    Not Dog Friendly

    Hot pavement without much shade except where there are no dogs allowed. Also no dogs allowed on the bridge or near the playground or picnic areas.

    Cannot Go On Bridge With Your Dog.

    Don’t walk up the ramp to bridge. Big sign at top saying no dogs. Lots of paved area to walk on the Louisville side though.
