Overall, this park is absolutely beautiful, despite the ongoing construction. It provides an active place for families, pets and friends. However, the park can be quite nefarious after dark and in no way would I want to be there without a weapon of some sort....More

Beautiful walking in the park with a pleasant view of the nearby homes, and of course it's all free.

Nice to have a park in the middle of the city, and it is pretty. They also have small dirt trails branching off of the main asphalt trail.

By far favorite park in Louisville! Very large and many trails to check out you can lay out for a picnic, go for a hike, or walk your dog. There are many feilds to play sports and a dog park, too!

Despite the heat, this was a beautiful loop to stroll. The homes surround the park are lovely to look at and the park itself is beautifully kept. A real jewel of the community. Worth the trip for a walk or bike.

Everyone told me Cherokee Park was a must-see when in Louisville, so I headed there on a rainy Sunday morning when I had a few free hours. Due to the rain there weren't many people out and about, but that made it better IMHO. I...More

No fee to get in, and I am with you on the age and all, but we ride/walk and I suggest the fall to do the walk/ride. It is hilly but I suggest to drive it and pick your area, some hills are worse than others.
