“Louisville's Best Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

This is one of the city's Olmstead Parks. It is huge and located in the Highlands. It not only has a golf course but also an archery course. Some streets are open to only pedestrians and cyclists. This is a great place to walk the dog, play frisbee, picnic, or go for a jog.

“Great for dog walks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

I take my dog on the scenic loop every week, and I always see cyclists, runners, walkers, other dogs, and kids enjoying the park. A wonderful park with a gorgeous layout.

“One of the best in louisville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

This park is dominated by the bardstown road crew and there is an atmosphere for everyone. Weather you are streaking through frisbee field or kicking it on dog hill, its always a good time. Friendly people and loads of fun.

“My neighborhood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

We walk here most every day of the week... its how I appreciate the seasons here in Louisville. Beautiful park, trails for the adventurous, walking paths for those who want them, many places to play and relax. One of the reasons we stay...
