louisville.com LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 7.19 43 "On the way to the best secret spot in Louisville, you'll pass the Portland neighborhood's mighty antebellum U.S. Marine Hospital, scenic Lannan Park and the McAlpine Locks and Dam. Take the bridge over the Louisville and Portland Canal — yes, the same canal that Abe Lincoln helped dig as a teenager — and look for the angler path near the parking lot. After a quick descent down some rather sketchy railroad-tie stairs, you'll find yourself in a secluded Southern paradise called Shippingport Island. The sandy, tree- canopied waterfront is a perfect spot for adventure, exploration and meditation. Heck, you can even jog there by entering the second annual Portland (Almost) 5K Fun Run during the Portland Art & Heritage Fair on September 28." — Danny Seim, artist "Best place to go for nature where it meets the urban landscape: Shippingport Island. Reminds me of an Andrei Tarkovsky movie. Surreal and filled with mysticism." — Katy Delahanty, Portland Museum board member and Louisville Visual Art outreach program director Illustration by Shae Goodlett SHIPPINGPORT ISLAND Our third annual pet cover contest, held in partnership with Feeders Supply invites pets of all kinds, shapes and sizes to compete for the chance to be featured on the cover of our September issue.
