The Widow's Walk (Ice Creamery, Coffee Shop and Bicycle Rentals) is situated on the banks of the Ohio River in Southen Indiana, directly overlooking the Louisville skyline. We are located across the street from Ashland Park, and the Ohio River Greenway. You can view absolute gorgeous sunsets over the Falls of the Ohio, and a beautiful view of the Louisville, Kentucky skyline at night!
We serve 23 flavors of hand dipped ice creams. People come from all over, besides our friends in Louisville, Kentucky, to enjoy ice cream with a view (nearly 10,000 visitors each month during peak season)! Our menu includes many specialty sundaes, like our famous "Proud Mary Peanut Butter Cup Sundae," which is warm brownies topped with our Peanut Butter Cup ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream, nuts and a cherry!
We offer a light food menu, and traditional favorites like banana splits, root beer floats, hot fudge sundaes, milk shakes, malts and all of your favorite hand dipped ice cream cones.
You can also rent bicycles here in Clarksville, Indiana and ride to Louisville, Kentucky, via the Big 4 Pedestrian Bridge and the Clark Memorial Bridge. You can also ride our bicycles on the Ohio River Greenway starting here and riding into New Albany Indiana, and Jeffersonville Indiana. There are portions of the Greenway that are complete and other portions that are under design. FYI, just a quick note, many people think we are in Jeffersonville, Indiana, but there is a fine line that defines us, and we are actually in Clarksville, Indiana. There are two 415 E. Riverside Drives along the Ohio River, but we are west of the Clark Memorial Bridge, located on the right before you get to The Falls of the Ohio State Park and Interpretive Center. We are located top and center of the Ohio River Greenway.
Bicycle rentals are available by the hour, half day, and full day, and must be returned by dark. Hourly rates are $8.00 an hour for adult cruisers, $10.00 an hour for adult tricycles and $10.00 an hour for adult bicycles with child seats (maximum 30 pounds in child seats). Tandem bikes rent for $16.00 an hour and are a lot of fun! Walk-in or reserved rentals are both welcomed, but to ensure availability of Tandems and/or Adult Tricycles, it's best to make a reservation. We do offer helmets and locks in case you are going to make any stops. Drivers license and credit card required for rentals. Rent any bicycle for 3 hours and get the 4th hour free!
The photo above shows our view and setting on the Ohio River Greenway overlooking Louisville, Kentucky's skyline. The Ohio River Greenway starts directly in front of us.
