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

This HUGE urban park is worth a visit....it's all back after being devastated in the April 1973 tornado and it has miles of cycling trails, walking paths and all the fun things (from grills to tennis courts) one thinks of when they think urban green space. It was designed by famous landscape designer Frederick Law Olmsted and is worthy of his great heritage!

This park has a great area for dogs, hikers, runners, it has it all. However, it's big enough to get lost in so make sure you remember where you came from

This is my favorite park for taking the kiddos walking or just to play. Great picnic areas and I usually feel pretty safe here. Nice place for your dogs as well.

This is a great park to use as a starting point for getting in those walking miles. Somewhat challenging hills but very worth it.

Just a great park. Another of several in Louisville designed by Fredrick Law Ohlmstead of N.Y.C.'s Central Park fame.
