Every Saturday, this place is full of runners, sports teams, dogs, and people just laying out. If you're a runner and looking for a nice, uninterrupted course with plenty of hills and trees, this is the best spot in Louisville. If you aren't into that, then there are some easy hiking trails you can take. The scenery is alright, but... More

I have been here a few times and really love this beautiful park near the city. I have taken stunning photos each time I am here. Even saw a hawk devour it's meal on our last trip. I'm not sure what facilities they have, since I have never had to use them. I want to take my bike the next... More

There is so much the park has to offer year-round (such as the sledding that has been so popular this snowy winter), as I'm sure other reviewers have detailed. I'd like to make note, though, of the park's winding scenic loop... More

One of the very best places in Louisville to bring you dog for a walk. They are almost everywhere. Many people will let their dogs play with the others. A beautiful park with a hill overlooking the seminary in the distance. In 1974 it was hit by a F4 tornado, and some said it would be 80 years before it... More

We love this park! I lived in Louisville for a few years and my wife and I like visiting the park when we are back in town! The park is especially beautiful in the Fall!

I took a drive through the park a few weeks ago during the peak of fall foliage.....it was amazing. It's a great park...lots of families, kids playing, runners, bicyclists, walkers.......something for everyone. Playgrounds, picnic areas, ample parking.

The trails here are well worth it. If you are a runner, put on your shoes and go for a short (or long) jaunt. Remember some water, as there are hills and you will certainly loose track of time!
