I've been going to Cherokee Park for years. It is a gorgeous park with winding roads and green everywhere. There are plenty of places to park and you can bring a bike and ride for hours or bring a picnic and enjoy a family outing. There is also a beautiful fountain that is a must see. I highly recommend a... More

We walked the scenic loop and some wooded trails. The park is beautiful, but the facilities are in need of some updating.

This is a ery nice public park - forested, green, hilly. Lots of people jogging or riding bikes. It's surrounded by big, beautiful houses and on a sunny day, it's a very nice drive around and through.

Cherokee Park, and the adjoining Seneca Park have been the standard in Louisville for decades for outdoor enthusiasts. I used to train in the park daily for bicycle racing and triathlons. The park has something to offer for everyone, and is conveniently located in the Highlands. If you have never visited, you are missing a great outdoor opportunity.

On a recent trip to Louisville, we visited Cherokee Park. It is a beautiful park! It was much larger than I had imagined with being an urban park. It reminded me a bit of Eden Park in Cincinnati for anyone who might be familiar with that park. Traffic is one way through the park with half of the street being... More

This park is wonderful to ...run, walk, bike, skate, lay out and sun your self on a hill, take you dogs to the dog park for some exercise, play a little golf, join in a rugby match, or just people watch. The wildlife areas are beautiful and... More

This beautifully landscaped park is perfect for dog walking. A little paradise in the middle of Louisville! Highly recommend a visit. Even a drive through is enjoyable.

We live near Cherokee Park and have the luxury of easy access to this beautiful park. There is a great walking/bike path with a good variety of hills/flat road. The fall trees were beautiful!
