Lincoln Memorial at Waterfront Park- Louisville
The Lincoln Memorial at Waterfront Park is a large interpretive landscape facing the Ohio River featuring a 12' statue of Lincoln, four bas reliefs, and a stone amphitheater. The memorial uses sculptural elements, artistic expression, and Abraham Lincoln’s own words to convey Lincoln’s lifelong ties to Kentucky and the state’s influence on his life. The memorial offers glimpses of different stages of Lincoln’s life, including his childhood in Kentucky, his political and social rise, the impact of the Civil War on Lincoln, his family, and the nation, and the roots of his abhorrence of slavery.
The Lincoln Memorial at Waterfront Park is free to the public and is open year-round during park hours, 6:00 a.m. through 11:00 p.m. daily.
