  • 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.
  • The scenic loop is an amazing path, their hiking trails vary from just starting to life-long trail enthusiasts. It's easy to see why it's one of best parks in Louisville Metro's park system. Olmsted's groups do an amazing job maintaining the park. Not to mention the view is amazing from every angle.
  • Love this park. A great place to jog or run the loop and let your stress just fall away. The beautiful trees and seeing others working out always made me happy no matter how stressed I felt before I got there.
  • I have always loved Big Rock. It is a great spot for a picnic! Of course, now everyone knows this, so expect a crowd.
