The more rugged of the Louisville parks, Iroquois Park, designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, has plenty of forested hillsides and scenic vistas for those willing to walk the extra mile.

Attended a concert by the Louisville Philharmonia Orchestra at the Iroquois Amphitheater. Excellent concert. Parking around the amphitheater was excellent.

Grew up in the southside of Louisville...and just recently re-visited the area. Lots has changed, but Iroquois Park always a favorite! Beautiful park, with golf, horseback riding, outdoor festivals, amphitheatre, cycling/running access and breath-taking views of the city from the overlook.

I grew up in this area and remember when the tornado went through taking out several of the oldest, largest trees. The park improvements since my last visit make the park even more beautiful.
