The Parklands of Floyds Fork – East Louisville

The Parklands of Floyds Fork is a large park system in East Louisville. When it is completed in 2015, it will include five separate but connected parks that will comprise a quarter of the Louisville Loop. There are hiking and biking trails, grasslands and wetlands, canoeing and fishing spots, a dog park, and playgrounds and spraygrounds. This is my family’s go-to spot for after work and weekend hiking. It’s close by, clean, and has excellent facilities, and it seems to have new hiking trails every time we go.
