HAVE A LAUGH!
FOR BIKING, WALKING, AND MORE TWO GREAT PARK SYSTEMS IN LOUISVILLE Is Louisville a walkable city like Chicago or San Francisco? Not by a long shot, but we’re getting better. New projects and initiatives are helping to make the city a place where you don’t need a car to get around everywhere. In the meantime, we do have two amazing park systems that allow you to walk, bike, and enjoy the summer in picturesque surroundings. The Frederick Law Olmsted Parks and Parkways system is perhaps the crowning achievement of the man regarded as the father of American landscape design. After completing seemingly impossible projects like Central Park in New York, Olmsted wanted a bigger challenge. He set out to create systems of parks that were connected with parkways. He completed these systems for Boston, Rochester, and Buffalo, but Louisville’s is generally considered to be the ultimate realization of his vision. It’s a pretty dang cool thing to have in our city, if you ask me. The Olmsted Parks include Algonquin Park, Cherokee Park, Baxter Square (Louisville’s first public park), and many more. It also includes 15 miles of tree-lined parkways. Whether you want to grill, play tennis, walk your dog, or simply take in the scenery, there’s a park in the system for you. In 2011, The Parklands of Floyds Fork project put a 21st-century spin on Olmsted’s ideas. Linked by urban trails and a park drive, it includes the amazing Beckley Creek Park — one of my personal favorites in the city. It has a great playground for kids and an incredible picnic grove shaded by oak trees. The Parklands of Floyds Fork also comprises Pope Lick Park, The Strand, Turkey Run Park (great for outdoor adventurers), and Broad Run Park. Work is still being done on these parks, so expect them to become even more spectacular over the coming years. Now’s the perfect time of year to get out and enjoy Louisville’s numerous parks. You may need a car to get there, but you can leave it behind for a day of fun in the sun.
