About Louisville KY

Louisville Parks

The city of Louisville boasts one of the finest park systems in the nation. Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the same designer of Manhattan’s Central Park, the Olmsted Park System brings beauty and nature to every Louisville community. There are large parks, like Cherokee Park in the Highlands neighborhood, which provides bike trails, picnic areas, fishing ponds, and a variety of outdoor fun for families and individuals. Old Louisville’s Central Park is a medium-sized park that is home to Shakespeare in the Park every summer, and is also the perfect rest area and meeting place during the Saint James Art Festival every fall. Smaller recreation areas, like Tyler Park in the Highlands and Shelby Park in Germantown are great for a picnic with the family or a short walk with a loved one.

Arts & Culture

Shakespeare in the Park and the Saint James Art Fair are not the only attractions Louisville has to offer lovers of the arts. The Louisville Palace on 4th Street presents a variety of musical acts every year, along with dramatic theatrical productions and popular stand-up comedians. The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts, also in downtown Louisville, brings some of the biggest shows in the nation to only a few miles from neighborhoods throughout Greater Louisville and Southern Indiana, saving theatre goers a trip to New York.

For those more interested in painting and sculpture, there is also the Speed Art Museum, near University of Louisville. The Speed Museum offers a variety of exhibits, classical and contemporary and a wonderfully enriching experience for anyone interested in art. For those interested in purchasing art, Louisville, home to a number of galleries, always has something new and interesting to hang on the wall.
