Exploring Louisville, KY in the fall

Pick a park, any park.

A trail snakes into the tree line, where vibrant green, orange, and red trees are turning for fall.

It’s time to get outside before the cold hits.

With fall weather in full swing, we can’t think of a better way to spend time than to be outside + we’re lucky to have over a dozen parks here that are a part of the Olmsted Parks Conservancy. Here are a few parks to enjoy the turning leaves.

Cherokee Park | 745 Cochran Hill Rd. | 389.13 acres | Open daily, 6 a.m. – 11 p.m.
Admire the beauty of the changing leaves while perusing long winding roads, and stop by Willow Pond to see if you can spot some wildlife.

Iroquois Park | 5216 New Cut Rd. | 725.85 acres | Open daily, 6 a.m. – 11 p.m.
Walk to the North Overlook to see some breathtaking views of Downtown Louisville and the Indiana Knobs.

Willow Park | 1200 Southwestern Pkwy. | 61.21 acres | Open daily, 6 a.m. – 11 p.m.
Stroll through this nationally-recognized park, and don’t forget to bring your rackets to hit the tennis courts.
