Walking Cherokee Park is a great way to spend a weekend afternoon. The main road is shaded and there are always plenty of people around (makes me feel safe). Be prepared to get lost driving through the Cherokee triangle and some parts of the main loop! And parking on the weekends can get kind of frustrating, but I've never not... More

I re-visited this park on our weekend trip to Louisville because of how much I loved it when I attended school in Louisville. The park has a great route to ride bikes or walk different loops around the soccer & softball fields, and also tennis courts w/ public restroom. There's a nice golf course, and excellent sled riding hills in... More

Drive, bike or walk the three mile scenic loop to explore the park designed by Olmstead - the architect of New York City's Central Park and the grounds of the Biltmore Estate! This was his last major commission of his career. Download the excellent free audio tour from the park website at: http://www.olmstedparks.org/our-parks/cherokee-park/ Restrooms, playground, covered pavilions (one with grills),... More

Our family had lots of fun at Cherokee Park when I was a kid in the last 50's and 60's and it is as beautiful now as it was then. Lots of activities going on, running, picnicking and children playing in a play area with water spouts. Definitely a place to visit if you are in the area. Cherokee Park... More

This is a lovely place to run, hike, explore, walk, or bike. We enjoyed a visit Fathers Day weekend. It is really pretty and we enjoyed the scenery. However, with young children this is not really suited. Just something to keep in mind. Not living in the area, and with two kids under seven, we probably wouldn't visit again.

This park offers it all. Great trails, jogging/walking/cycling path, picnic shelters, playgrounds, golf, and plenty of green space.

I've lived in Louisville my whole life and I am proud that Cherokee Park is part of my town. It's lovely, scenic and has a creative design. It was designed by the same fella that designed Central Park in NYC. Whether you're just passing through or you live here, it's definitely a nice place to visit and experience.

This is one of the loveliest spots to visit year round. The scenic loop is a great spot for walkers, runners or just picking a spot and lounging. The park is ever changing with the seasons so put it in your "to do list" year round.

This is a nice park with a lot of unique features. The creek that run through it is clean and made a beautiful backdrop for our impromptu picnic. Parking was limited to just a few designated places and you are not allowed to park along the roads which means packing your picnic gear to that perfect spot. Do beware of... More
