“Always a beautiful place to visit, regardless of season.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Even though I do not live an hour away from Louisville, Cherokee Park is so extraordinarily beautiful that I make an effort to go there whenever I can. Even if it's only for a fifteen minute drive around or stroll, in between appointments, it offers peace, beauty, and tranquility. I envy the many who live nearby that can go and visit frequently, yet am proud for them getting to experience such a heavenly park and appreciate it for all it offers.

“Fantastic Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

Plenty of park to share for everyone. Located inside the Highlands neighborhood and a short walk from Bardstown Rd., the park is safe even at night. Run or cycle of the park's 2.3 mile loop (which is one way and closed to traffic on one side), which also connects to the adjacent Seneca Park via Beargrass Rd. or Park Boundary Rd. if you want to add some distance. The park has some pretty decent hills and around the park as well making it a popular spot for local cyclists. The park has an ever expanding network of mountain bike and hiking trails as well. None of these trails are too tough for an average stroll with young children. Hogan's Fountain is a great place to relax, and it is where the park's famous teepee structure is housed. Other amenities include restrooms, a playground, a basketball court and a baseball field. At frisbee field you can catch a rugby match in the spring and summer. Dog Hill offers a great place to watch the sunrise or sunset, and includes a playground and restrooms as well. The park is sandwiched between Willow Park which is home to the Cherokee Triangle Art Fair in late spring, and Seneca Park which has a 1 mile walking loop with a playground and athletic fields in between. Take note that parking may be an issue especially on days with good weather. Great park that perfect for everyone.

“Great park. Awesome dog park.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Were visiting Louisville with some friends and stopped in to this park and had a great time. I wish I had more time to explore. The bulk of our time was up at the dog park. Very nice fenced in area to let your dogs run free. THey had a blast. Now, technically you need to be a member to enter this dog area, but a friendly owner let us in with their key. Nobody seemed to mind. People in Kentucky are a little friendlier than the rest of the country. Stop on by. Cool place to bike, mountain bike, hike, explore, play, geocache, etc.

“Greenery in City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

If you want to relax, walking in the park then this is good place to go. It is calm and relax, lots of green and trees just a bit out from downtown. If you like to have long walk or bring your kids with you, it's good family day.
