Nice Addition to Old Louisville

We walked around this park. Keep in mind it was January, cold and snowy so shows weren't going on and flowers weren't blooming. Given all that, it was a nice area to walk, but... read more

We walked around this park. Keep in mind it was January, cold and snowy so shows weren't going on and flowers weren't blooming. Given all that, it was a nice area to walk, but I'd recommend walking the area across the street in Old Louisville. It is much more interesting and pretty!

This park is big enough for kids to run, kick a soccer ball or play in the water "fountain" (which was a large concrete area- not too creative but at least kids can get get and run around). Adults can enjoy benches under the large old trees. There's a stage and concession stand for events and bathrooms which are open... More

We visited the park expecting a Frederick Law Olmstead park to be exceptional. One look at the condition of the park and we decided to drive past it. The grass was not mown and must have been six inches high. Branches wee on the ground. It looked horrible and we drove on.

We needed something to fill-in between planned activities on recent trip to L'ville and this fit time and area. This was a family trip so was not sure how the teenagers would react to Shakespeare but was pleasantly surprised. The acting was far better than expected and the park atmosphere was great! While I did not have a drink it... More

Central Park offers a great open grassy area for relaxing, walking or just sitting and watching the birds. It's very shaded and offers good relief for the built-up area of residential homes and complexes around it. It could be better maintained -- there are often limbs down.

I truly enjoyed the mature trees, and beautiful peaceful surroundings of this small park near Old Town Louisville. It appears to be very pet friendly for those of you wanting to walk the pups. I would attach a visit here when visiting other things in the area, but not seek it out for a visit there alone. I read on... More

I lived in an apartment complex two blocks from this park for almost a year. It's not spectacular but it is a refreshing bit of nature in the middle of an urban landscape. There were several occasions when other patrons in the park made me feel uncomfortable and I rarely spent more than 15 minutes there. It's NOT a gem... More

This is a large and beautiful park in the center of Old Louisville. Many new trees have been added in recent years. The existing trees require maintenance and trimming that has not been done.

Ok. So they have a tennis court. I was approached by a prostitute in broad daylight and when refused she eventually flagged down a car. When I tried to use the bathroom, I had to wake an old homeless guy who got angry. Some shady guys were just hanging around. I see no reason to go back. There are much... More

Of course, this is not that Central Park of New York City. Yet, it is spacious, with shady tall trees and clean paths to walk through. Squirrels are found everywhere, not scared of people and not annoying, either. There was an outdoor theater for different kinds of performances. The afternoon I was there, there was a young band playing some... More
