This park was across the street from our B & B Central Park Bed & Breakfast. It's open and a nice jaunt in open space. If you need a brisk walk or run this is the place.

The park itself is nothing special but it's in Old Louisville surrounded by mansions. You can easily drive through and have a pleasant sightseeing.

Free productions of Shakespeare plays all summer long for over 50 years. Food trucks supply the eats, and there is a bar should you care to partake. Picnic tables nearby, bring your own food or sample the food trucks. Police substation on site. Safe, family...More
