I live in Old Louisville, on one block from Central Park. The park has wonderful events--Shakespeare Festival, and music concerts throughout the summer. It isn't a very large park, but it is nice to have a bit of green space so close to my house.

Well designed city park with Louisville Metro Police Department substation on the grounds, so very safe place. Good for dog walking, small family gatherings.

It's one of the smaller Olmsted designed Louisville parks but is much better when Shakespeare in the Park is going on in the summer. It's also nice during the Saint James Art Show in October or when there are a few jazz shows in September....More
