We spent the better part of an afternoon in Cherokee Park hiking the trails an making friends with the many dogs that were there to play. The park is beautiful with many mature trees. We were there in October so the Fall colour was gorgeous. It was quite crowded but parking was no problem.

Louisville has an amazing park system. Cherokee Park is HUGE. For runners, walkers, people with dogs, and families.

Great place to get off road for trail running or mountain biking. Start at the top of the Scenic Loop or Dog Hill as locals call it. In front of the pavilion there is a path that goes down a steep hill, at the base you can go left or right. The trail meanders through the park and at times... More

I'm so glad I visited this park! The scenic loop was really neat to drive and the trails were a lot of fun to explore. I loved that so many people had their dogs with them and everyone seemed to really be having a great time. Despite the cold there was a pretty good number of people.

Visiting my daughter down at school, we enjoy going for a long walk or run. This is a beautiful park with a great path for walking or running and plenty of room for a picnic. It has beautiful large trees and is walking distance from Bardstown Rd. Louisviille, KY

At the fairs I have gone to, there are free art activities for the children and bands are playing all the time and of course typical fair... More

This park was designed by Frank Law Olmstead. Thus it is ihistorical as well as very well done and family friendly,. I grew up running around in this park.. I love it as much today as I did then.

went here on our way to another park in the area to see the overlook, it was a very nice park, but traffic was crazy & it was over crowded, so we didn't stay, construction in the area is bad

If you like to walk or run you have found the place. It has lots of one way places to walk. During the day it is perfectly safe. At night like any park I would suggest not going. There is alos a dog park.

I visited Cherokee park to kill some time after visiting with friend for the weekend. The park is huge and is meant to serve the community of Louisiville. It has several nature trails for walking/ biking. They are inspirational and beautiful, complete with a wildlife like birds and squirrels. It also has a gated dog park where your dog can... More
