Hike, Bike & Paddle


This year’s Hike will consist of a 4-mile walk with multiple marked turnaround points throughout. Travel from the Great Lawn and follow the Ohio River east to RiverPark Place and back. The furthest distance will cross the Big Four Bridge into Indiana and come back.


Cycle from the Great Lawn out to Shawnee Park and back, nearly 12 miles! The roads will be closed for you to safely travel to Iroquois, and there will be individuals riding along to help with any roadside assistance.


Paddlers will have the option of launching at the Harbor Lawn or the U of L Boat Docks and paddle downstream to meet the other paddlers. This year’s paddle will go from the Harbor Lawn downriver to the McAlpine Locks, through the locks and to the Shawnee Park Boat Ramp.



Waterfront Park

The Waterfront isn't just a place, it's an experience. An experience that's different for everyone....
