The Big Four Bridge
At 5,252 feet long and over 53 feet high, the Big Four Bridge in its current form was completed in 2013. It serves as a popular pedestrian bridge over the Ohio River, linking Kentucky and Indiana.
The Great Lawn
The Great Lawn is comprised of the North Lawn and South Lawn. At seven and five acres respectively, this expansive open space is a frequent venue for concerts, events, and firework displays.
The Belle of Louisville
As the oldest steamship still in operation, this 100 year old historic steamship continues to travel up and down the Ohio River. Every year, three days before the Kentucky Derby, viewers line the riverbanks as the Belle of Louisville races a rival steamship in what is called "The Great Steamboat Race".
River Front Plaza/Belvedere
Over 7 acres of lawns, fountains, stages, and historic
statues continue as a popular Louisville venue for outdoor concerts.
At twelve feet tall, this imposing statue of Abraham Lincoln looking out over the Ohio River is one of Waterfront Park's most popular feature. Make sure to view the four life size bas reliefs depicting Lincon's Kentucky ties.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
You'll have the time of your life under the professional guidance of our friendly and knowledgeable tour guides. As the only Segway, Inc. authorized tour in Louisville, we're proud to offer a Segway fleet comprised of the latest models. We follow strict maintenance guidelines put in place by Segway, Inc to assure each and every Segway runs like a dream.
Each of our Segways are equipped with a small tour bag to hold personal essentials. Your time with us will begin with a quick video and hands on training, during which you'll be provided a helmet and state-of-the-art wireless communication systems with your very own, never-used, earbud to take home. If you prefer, feel free to bring your favorite 3.5 mm jack headphones. We want you to be completely comfortable during the tour, so our comfort foot mats are an upgrade from the standard Segway mats, and flexible rescheduling will fit even the most hectic of schedules.
WHO CAN GO?
All participants must be at least 14 years old; minors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian 21 years or older. Unfortunately anyone under the age of 14 will not be permitted to participate.
The engineering magic behind the Segway relies on sensitive gyroscopes. In turn, participants must be at least 48" tall, and weigh at least 100 pounds and not in excess of 260 pounds.
Due to the risk to both child and mother, pregnant women are not permitted to participate on our Segway tours.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
Once you have booked your tour and received a confirmation, you will need to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to tour departure for training. Please bring a bottle of water and wear comfortable flat closed-toe shoes and layers of clothing appropriate for the day's expected weather. We also recommend sunglasses and sunscreen.
