My daughter and her BFF wanted to dress up and take pics while we were in Louisville. Despite it being 100 degrees outside, it was a beautiful setting for pics and they had a lot of fun.

The show was fantastic; a comedy of errors. They must spray the park because we stayed for almost 4 hours and not a bite. Stay for the improv part after the main show!

I live in Old Louisville, on one block from Central Park. The park has wonderful events--Shakespeare Festival, and music concerts throughout the summer. It isn't a very large park, but it is nice to have a bit of green space so close to my house.

Well designed city park with Louisville Metro Police Department substation on the grounds, so very safe place. Good for dog walking, small family gatherings.

Louisville's Central Park is easy to get to, south of the downtown area along South Fourth Street. It's a good place for a relaxing stroll in the middle of a busy city. The south edge of the park leads into St. James Court which has...More

It's one of the smaller Olmsted designed Louisville parks but is much better when Shakespeare in the Park is going on in the summer. It's also nice during the Saint James Art Show in October or when there are a few jazz shows in September....More
