5,000 jack o' lanterns is a lot. Many were very intricate and amazing. At one point the jacks were up in the trees and over our heads. It was really incredible. This year's theme was "America the Beautiful." They had at least one pumpkin carved for each state and arranged by region. Some regions had themes...aliens in the southwest, a... More

It's a mess. Have to wait in a long long line of traffic to get to parking and then have to stand in another long long line even if you purchase tickets in advance online. Could be better organized then what it is.

We visited the park for the Jack O-Lantern Spectacular. The event itself was great! We loved the pumpkins however parking is limited and you have to park and walk and then walk about a 1/2 mile before you even get to the path. Despite the walking we didn't expect it was a great experience and beautiful park!

This is a very large park that has something for everyone. It has an 18 hole golf course, a huge playground with a small splash park, a frisbee gold course, and hiking, running....on and on and on.

I've been to this venue three separate times and I'll gladly drive the the two and half hours it takes for me to catch a show here. It's an extremely intimate music venue for its size. It's a must for anyone that's an avid music lover.

After driving around the park for a bit, we did finally see the start of a hiking trail. There are no signs or indications of where trails start. The hike itself was ok, there were some pretty spots. Also along the trail there was a lot of garbage in some places. The trail took us up to the lookout point... More

This is one of the best parks in Louisville. The grounds are kept clean, the playground works for all children. The amphitheater is amazing.

One of metro Louisville's largest parks with a 'perimeter' road, numerous hiking trails, basketball courts, and ball fields, bathrooms and an outdoor amphitheater. For the most park an excellent park with comprehensive facilities and very interesting natural upland forested area. On a cautionary note, the crime rate, which I subscribe to a 'reporting service' for, has shown a disturbing increase... More

Iroquois Park is easily accessible from I265 or I264. It features activities for all ages. We utilize the riding trails and for a park in the city, the trails provide an escape from most of the city life. While some of the trails aren't the best marked and criss cross with other activity areas, it still a good ride.

at night the music pounds so loud (good luck sleeping) people smoking and selling drugs at night. occasional gun fire. stink bugs and lady bugs swarm from the park into your house. and the car show, you get to hear loud speakers, cars exhaust revving up and cars racing down the street all day. and any marathons- they block your...
