Friends of the Waterfront are ambassadors of the park. Our ultimate goal is to ensure our community’s continued use and appreciation of the river.
We engage enthusiastic supporters through a variety of programs, events, education, fundraising, and marketing efforts. With a vibrant and active membership, we work hard to educate others about the significance of the river and our waterfront. We work closely with the Waterfront Park Board to form meaningful partnerships with other community groups in the city.
We also support the park’s main events, including Waterfront Wednesdays, Waterfront Park Fourth of July, and the Hot Brown Showdown, through our fundraising efforts.
A volunteer-driven organization focused on supporting Louisville’s Waterfront Park through promotion, advocacy, and fundraising.

Friends of the Waterfront began as the Marketing and Community Involvement Committee for Waterfront Park. In 1988, we founded Friends, and in 1991, we became a separate nonprofit organization. We continue to work closely with the Waterfront Park team to promote and grow our park.
