My secret getaway

Simply a beautiful park with lots of walk paths and trails. A relaxing environment. People are very friendly and pet owners actually keep their pets on the leash

A beautiful green area in Louisville. Hiking trails, bike trails, walking trails, golf, basketball, splash park, dog park -- you name it -- it's tucked away somewhere. Very easy to get lost in and spend many hours exploring. Remember where you parked your car.

I grew up going to the park with my father and I still think it is one of the most beautiful parks I have ever been to. So much to do!

Was looking for some outdoor activites during my short trip to the city and loved this park! Great place for hiking, biking, picnicking, etc. Great location too, close to downtown but provides a completely secluded feeling. Little bit about my visit and more on Louisville --> http://www.yogifootprints.com/?p=2365

We drove through this park on a Saturday morning at 10am. It was PACKED with joggers, walkers and parents walking babies in strollers. In fact, it was so packed we didn't find a place to park. Just drove through slowly. A few things to note: 1/ Most people seemed to be sticking to the paved drive/road which circles the park... More

I will begin with a confession: my high rating is biased because I remember what happened to this lovely park on April 3, 1974. One of the tornadoes in the "super outbreak" turned many of the trees in Cherokee park into toothpicks. Having seen what that tornado did in 1974, it's a joy to see this park today: restored, alive... More

I walk to this park from my home often. I usually walk the loop a couple times a week and there are usually several people around walking, running, biking, laying on a blanket reading, letting dogs play and run. On one particular day last week while walking the loop a deer crossed right in front of me in the middle... More

We were really disappointed with this park. Although we drove through it there was really nothing much to see or do. There were a good number of people running, and a few cyclists. Probably a park more for local people to spend time in than visitors to the city.

Beautiful park and a great place for the family. I would have given it an excellent rating (5), however, the stream had many warning signs not to touch the water due to sewage overflow. That was kind of a drawback. The play areas and shelters were all very nice.
