Waterfront Venues

The Overlook



The Overlook in Waterfront Park.

The Gracehoper sits majestically on the Overlook.

The Overlook is a tertiary venue, with extensive seating and a great view of the Ohio River. Directly adjacent to the Northern Great Lawn, the Overlook steps can provide seating for 1000 users, while the overlook itself is more appropriate as vending space or a site for a small gathering.

Venue features:

  • - Adjacent to Festival Plaza and the North Great Lawn.
  • - Nearby Walking access from the Blue Parking Lot.
  • - A large installation sculpture, The Gracehoper, by Tony Smith.
  • - The Overlook is surfaced with crushed granite, which is easy on the feet.
