    There is a "scenic loop" throughout the park that makes it really simple to traverse w/out confusion. The heavily tree lined streets in the park (& out) make this town/area one of my favorite smaller,...  more »

    This park has a one way street that zigs and zags through the entire park. They took the left land and made it a pedestrian and bike lane. It's perfect for jogging, walking or bicycling if you can han...  more »

    It's a huge park and very beautiful. Not a whole lot of intense trails, but short scenic ones. The witches hat is also awesome to hold events or get togethers. It's really nice and the community loves it. There are also plenty of seating throughout the park. Just know to get out, you have to make a right. Anywhere. There won't be signs to show you which way is out. If you don't know this, you'll keep following the road/always turning left and you'll just keep circling around.

    A winding walking and biking loop, mountainbike trails, open fields, playgrounds, tennis and basketball courts, a swimming hole, and more, and it's all within the city limits. Cherokee Park is my favorite place in Louisville, and it makes living in the area fantastic. An outside visitor may not be wowed by it like you would Mammoth Cave or Red River Gorge, but visiting it again and again never ceases to be an absolute pleasure.

    There's a lot to love about Cherokee park. It has amenities for many different activities. The park it's mostly bound by a one-way road, the inner lane of which, is designated strictly for activities not involving motor vehicles. This gives walkers, cyclists, longboarders, etc., two miles of a full driving lane(mostly), with challenging hills, and beautiful scenery, looped for doing their thing. The park has a large open area with good parking, known locally as Frisbee Field, that can accommodate many team sports. Other areas include playgrounds, picnic areas with built in grills, a water play fountain, a half basketball court, as well as hiking-biking trails. The park is well cared for by the Olmsted park people, as well as it's regular visitors.

    A fabulous city park. Great for dog walking, bike riding, frisbee throwing. Nice hilly terrain. Great running, wonderful mountain bike trails. Basketball, softball, picnics. A truly great urban playground designed by the great Frederick Law Olmsted.

    Cherokee Park is gorgeous. Part of one of the top park systems in the country. Massive green spaces, wildlife, waterways, walking and biking lanes, dog park, Frisbee field, archery target field, Golf course, basketball court, and extensive walking trails and playground area.

Where to stay in Louisville

Old Town has a number of atmospheric hotels close to the city’s main attractions, while hotels in the Highlands neighborhood offer proximity to the city’s most unusual bars, restaurants, and stores. Louisville’s collection of bed and breakfasts, generally farther from town, are a great way to experience some warm Kentucky hospitality. To save some money and enjoy the city’s scenic surroundings on a vacation in Louisville, consider one of Louisville’s campgrounds. The Jefferson Memorial Forest is just 24 km (15 mi) south of downtown.
