Indiana, Dearborn County, Lawrenceburg
river mile 493
Lawrenceburg was one of the first towns to wall itself off from the Ohio River with levees. The historic house at the bottom of the levee on the land side, the remnant 19th century storefront and neighborhood, and the open fields surrounding them attest to the disappearance of industry from this location. The River Walk itself is anchored by Ivy Tech, a local branch of the state community college system. There is a hotel and a restaurant on the river, and a number of restaurants, bars, and shops in the adjacent historic downtown. Bicyclists would enjoy the ambience, but kayakers would have a difficult time dragging their crafts up the low bluff to the top of the levee. There might be space for them at the downstream end of the park, where several RVs are parked.
The next park is Ratliff Landing
