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

We spent an hour relaxing at the park this morning. I was stunningly quiet. We saw three or four people walking their dogs, but it was mostly squirrels and cicadas that had the run of the place. I would recommend you stop in if you are walking through old Louisville during the day. Not sure about the night but we... More

FORGET THIS PLACE...unless you want to see a special event, Shakespeare in the Park (Free ), or take a brief break while walking around the historical homes in the immediate area like St James and Belgravia Court. There is too much talk about safety on this site. Yes, there are occasionally homeless people, and yes, there are occasionally people that... More

This is one of the "pockets" in the Old Louisville area that's a bit scarey. As we cut through the park to view the St. James Fountain, there were homeless people sleeping on the ground there. We were also bummed for money and cigarettes. I'm not rich my any means and I, myself, struggle to keep a car on the... More

Took the kids here to run around and burn off energy between stops. Lots of playground equipment and water fountains for kidd to run through.
