Rick Bell Historic Walking Tours

Location: Meet at the Belle of Louisville and walk to the Lincoln Memorial

Please join author and historian, Rick Bell as he returns to Waterfront Park for monthly walking tours. Bell will be hosting a FREE 1.5-mile historical walking tour on the last weekend of the month from June through September. The first tour will begin June 29th at 10:00 AM. Tours will begin at the Belle of Louisville and will take you all through Waterfront Park until you reach the Lincoln Memorial.

Bell will give attendees the opportunity to educate themselves from what used to be a barren scrap yard, to what is now Waterfront Park, 85-acres of open green space giving people access to the Ohio River in downtown Louisville. Whether it is describing the riverfront’s importance to the growth of Louisville, or even a chilling story of sleigh rides on the Ohio, Bell’s historical walks will leave you feeling like a Waterfront Park expert!

RAIN OR SHINE
Participants should wear comfortable walking shoes and bring drinking water and sunscreen. Paid parking is available in the Blue Lot (Wharf)

Tours are free to attend, the favor of registration is requested. Click HERE to register.
