Have not been yet. I dont see a reason to actually connect it to IN either, maybe just pass over it and circle back to the great lawn or something.

yeah i have been. I think it's a great addition to our riverfront parks system and a great way to use the old big four bridge which was becoming quite dilapidated.

I went and thought it was really nice. I'm actually looking forward to it getting connected to the IN side. It will be really nice, once they finish the Ohio River Greenway, to be able to ride a bike on a purely designated bike trail all the way from New Albany to Jeff and across the river into Louisville. I think it's going to be a good thing for Jeffersonville as well. The town is trying to plan extra bike lanes into various areas and I think there may be an increased interest in some development around the area since you're basically opening up Louisville's Waterfront park to the Indiana side without having to get in your car and drive across an interstate bridge, navigate off the exit and one way streets, then find a place to park. The views from Jeff are great and it's nice along the riverfront. There's a lot of potential there.

I haven't been yet and would like to go, but with the talk of them banning dog owners since they don't pick up after their dog, I'm unsure. I am a good dog owner and pick up after mine compared to a particular neighbor who doesn't. I've gotten on to him about it, but he's country. Anyways, can you walk with your dog on their or have they banned people doing so~? Also, where do you park to go to it~? The parking lots with the colored signs~? Thanks.

Yes, plus I heard they built a new lot next to the bridge.

Like where is this bridge at, near the playground~? Or is it farther by Tumbleweed. It's been a while that I've been down there but usually go to the Great Lawn area and that walkway and park-like area....not the playground tho pass thru it when we do that small loop. Thanks again.

It's pretty easy to find. There is a parking lot immediately to the east of the ramp which is also right next to the little splash park outside Tumbleweed's front door. From west to east it's playground, Lincoln statue, bridge, splash park, then Tumbleweed.

They haven't banned dogs yet and I hope they don't have to, but people are extremely selfish and lazy when it comes to picking up after their dogs. I lived at 4th and Ormsby in a nice condo for a while and every single unit but ours and one other had at least one dog in it. Every single one of those people I swear thought it was perfectly acceptable to let their dogs crap in the strip of grass right outside where anyone who had to park on the street had to walk through it every day despite signs saying not to. I don't think the city will let that fly on the bridge though.

MissingIndiana...many cities keep stocked "pooper scooper" bags next to garbage cans. Does the big four bridge have these? If not, they need to. Someone should write the city to install containers of these next to the benches and garbage cans. The cost to maintain these would be much cheaper (and better) than paying sanitation crews to pick up after lazy people.
