Less hilly and grassier than its local cousins, Cherokee Park is mostly open meadows and woods.

A big, little park :)
Feb 2021
Cherokee Park is one of my favorite parks in Louisville. The dog watching, the hills, the off road hiking areas, and the gorgeous grassy hill are just some of its perks!

Great place to wander
Nov 2020
Close to downtown so we didnt have to go far from our hotel. It is not as big as Floyds Parklands but still a good place to visit.

Walkers & bicycles welcome-traffic not so much.
Nov 2020 • Couples
Due to the virus threat the parks department has closed the roads to traffic at the present time. However, the park is open to walkers and cyclists. Simply park your car down by entrance if not on bicycle of course and take a nice stroll in the park and observe the fall colors. As one of the 17 Olmsted parks in Louisville it’s the second largest and one of the crowning jewels of our park system. Hopefully this pandemic will abate by the spring and we will be able to enjoy this park to the full extent.

Whether you want to take your kids to the playground, or you want to exercise, or just want to take fresh air, or you want to take a time to meditate, this is a great place. The park is big and beautiful. Worth coming.

Nice little park
Nov 2019
Cherokee Park is an urban park with easy access from I-64 in Louisville, KY. It was designed in 1890 by Frederick Law Olmstead, who designed about 20 other parks in Louisville. Cherokee Park is just over 400 acres in size. There is a dog park, a picnic area, a frisbee field, a mountain biking trail several miles long, a nine hole golf course, lots of wooded areas, a fishing/canoeing lake, and a large grassy hill which I like best when there is snow on the ground for sledding. Cherokee Golf Course is one of the oldest public golf courses in the US. It measures about 2915 yards long; however, the city is considering closing the golf course so there will be more acreage in the park available for the citizens who do not play golf.

What a beautiful park
Sep 2019 • Family
I was in Louisville for a wedding and had Saturday afternoon free but a limited amount of time. I took my daughters to Cherokee Park. There is a 2.4 mile walking path there where some years ago the city made the road “one way” and the second lane is now dedicated to walkers and bikers. We parked at Hogan’s Fountain which has a pavilion, picnic tables, sprinkler park and restrooms. After a bit, we saw a path down into the woods and were delighted when it opened up into a well constructed walkway with split board railings and a pathway. We had a lovely afternoon in this gorgeous park.

Huge Urban park
Sep 2019
The park is huge and right in Louisville. However, once in the park you would never know you are in a city as large as Louisville. The park is that big and you seem miles from anyone on the trails and roads. Great place to hang out often.

Perfect for Running or Relaxing
Aug 2019
Here for vacation, my gym was closed so was looking for a place to go running. This came up on the list advertising a 2.4 mile running loop. The entire park is BEAUTIFUL, with leafy trees and plenty of statues/fountains. Very calm and relaxing. 5/5 would recommend even just driving through if you are in the area.
