The Big Four Bridge, Louisville Reviews - Write a Review

  • This has got to be one of the most unique bridges I've ever been on. The views are outstanding, the history of the bridge and its age alone will make you really appreciate it. And being able to walk from Kentucky to Indiana and back again is something not everyone can say they've done. You'll be in awe of the views even if you don't like the walking. It's just long enough where just about anyone can do it. If you're around the area do try your best to get to it. You'll have views that will be in your memory for a lifetime!

  • Great walking/jogging facility. Great alternate way to view the Ohio river while burning some calories. The facility and surrounding parks are maintained very well. There are restrooms at either end of the bridge in the park areas. The only criticism is the parking that's right at the on ramp is frequently filled up.

  • Highly recommended place to take a walk. Big 4 bridge is beautiful with history. I have been here many times, and felt relaxed and comfortable. The lights at light were beautiful as well. Lots of personal memory at this place.

  • Walking this bridge is one of the best things to do in the area. The views are excellent. I've heard of some bad things happening on the bridge after dark, but seems to have calmed down since they installed surveillance cameras. I think I will still not walk after night. Its really neat to watch the barges and boats go by. Kids love it.

  • Beautiful view. Excellent walkway, there is a lot of history on this bridge. Like most of Kentucky, there are more benches in this city than anywhere else I've ever been too. Walk five minutes in one direction and you'll find benches under bridges, by the waterfront, even scenic bridges have benches. If you're not careful you might accidentally run into one
